THEY clung to their mother for a warm hug and a cuddle. Born just three weeks ago these ring-tailed lemur twins are still a little shy.
But they will soon be monkeying around and causing their mum, called Ma, grief with the other primates at Burford’s Cotswold Wildlife Park.
The little animals are just four to five inches long.
There have been three sets of twins born this month to three lemurs at the park.
Curator Jamie Craig said: “When they get a bit older, they will be a handful.
“But at the moment the mum will keep them very close.”
The park is celebrating lemurs until Sunday, with talks and activities to highlight conservation work. It is open from 10am until 6pm. Entrance costs £14.50 for adults and £10 for children.
