Bring your ma to see some baby lemurs


If you need a place to bring the family on Mother’s Day — and are firmly confident in your own levels of cuteness — you might want to check out the new family in the Tropical Forest exhibit at Franklin Park Zoo.

A ring-tailed lemur named Nebbie gave birth to twins this week — just in time for the holiday’s free admission this year.

The species is a rare, cat-sized primate with a distinctive black-and-white tail found only on the island of Madagascar, one of the most biodiverse regions of the world, according to the zoo’s website.

It’s name comes from the latin word meaning “ghost” or “spirit of the dead,” because of the haunting noises they make to communicate danger to their friends. Check it out:

The zoo is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
