Edinburgh Zoo’s endangered ring-tailed lemur troop celebrated their birthdays with a special cake this week, made by the wildlife conservation charity’s keepers. 

Born in February and March, the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland’s (RZSS) lemur group, which is properly known as a conspiracy, were treated to a sweet potato, leaf pellet and yoghurt cake, with carrot ‘candles’.  

Visitors to the zoo can spot Pop Pop, Kitata, Jingoma and Tipiaka in the indoor and outdoor viewing areas of their enclosure.
