Lemurs devour Christmas treats at London Zoo

Festive celebrations came to ZSL London Zoo as the animals received early Christmas treats. The lucky animals included ring-tailed lemurs, Bolivian black-capped squirrel monkeys and a Sumatran tiger called Asim.

Each enclosure received different edible treats. The lemurs were given sweet potato bites hidden in stockings, the monkeys got an unusual mix of wax-worms and strawberry paste and the tiger got traditional turkey presented in a gift box.

The idea behind the treats may seem like a bit of fun for visitors but the animal operations manager at the zoo points out that it is a great way to make feeding time interesting for the animals and get them into the festive spirit in the process.
