These 5 beautiful lemurs joined the crew at the San Diego Zoo from Madagascar on June 15. The group of 4 females and one male showed up ring-tailed, wide-eyed and ready to explore. 

The lemur is a primate native to the island of Madagascar. Of the 103 known species of lemur, around 90% are endandered, making it the most threatened primate in the world.
