Sadly on the 29th January we had to say goodbye to Lewy, one of our black-and-white ruffed lemurs who had been at the zoo since we opened in 2005.
At 20 years old, he was a good age and until fairly recently had enjoyed a great quality of life. About a year ago he developed a kidney problem, which was treatable at first, but in the past few weeks led to other complicated health issues.
He was such a sweet, chilled out lemur who loved to sunbath, spend time on his swing, get a tickle under his arm and munch on his favourite treats of banana and sweet potato. He had a wonderful relationship with his keepers and he will by everyone at the zoo!
