The amazing lemurs at Lemur Conservation Foundation’s Myakka City habitats got to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with some delicious cranberry sauce.
Our animal husbandry team spread cranberry sauce throughout their enclosures and on their branches.
Based on their faces and how quickly the cranberry sauce was eaten, we can assume these lemurs were very thankful for their extra Thanksgiving enrichment!
