Up-Close Look: Lemurs

Join us for a chance to get an in-depth look at one of the most popular animals at the zoo – lemurs! This Up-Close Look begins with a guided tour of our resident ring-tailed and red-ruffed lemurs in our Emerald Forest. Learn all about the way Denver Zoo cares for these playful primates as you watch them leap and jump in their habitat. Your exclusive experience continues as you meet up with the animal care staff that work with lemurs every day. You’ll get the unique opportunity to immerse yourself in our nighttime exhibit and watch one of our resident aye-ayes receive a special treat. Please note this experience includes exclusive interactions with zoo experts and an up-close look at lemur exhibits and enrichment. Because of safety regulations, guests will not receive direct contact or behind-the-scenes access to the animals.
