  • Rare Newborn Blue-Eyed Black Lemur Raises Hopes to Save Species

    A rare female newborn blue-eyed black lemur, Ikopa, was moved to the La Palmyre Zoo nursery in Les Mathes, France to receive special care due to her fragility and low weight. Born on April 9, Ikopa continues to receive special care from her keepers, who feel her milk every two hours, as well as bits of fruits and vegetables. While Ikopa musters up enough strength to leave her incubators, her parents and older brother can maintain visual contact with her from their adjacent cage. Blue-eyed black lemurs, like all true lemurs can only be found on the African island nation of Madagascar and their numbers have drastically fallen. These primates are classified by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as "critically endangered" because humans have cut down nearly all the forest areas which these animals call home to clear land for farming. It is believed that as few as 1,000 blue-eyed black lemurs remain in the wild.

  • Baby Amur Leopard Cub, World's Rarest Big Cat, Born at Yalta Zoo

    Vets were hand-feeding the tiny Amur leopard baby at the Yalta Zoo, as the cub is still too young to open its eyes or even walk on four legs. Only 57 Amur leopards, which are listed as "Critically Endangered," are believed to live in the wild as of 2015. Despite the fact that Amur leopard numbers have roughly doubled since 2007, they are still the species of large felines most vulnerable to extinction.
