By Chester Zoo
In July we welcomed our first baby Alaotran gentle lemur. This was the first birth that the zoo had seen of this species and it took over a month to actually discover the sex of the baby.
The birth was great news for the species as a whole with less than 2,500 thought to remain in the wild - and was seen as another great step towards conservation for the zoo.
