Baby Diary: Our young red-ruffed lemur is growing at an accelerated rate!
aby Diary: Our young red-ruffed lemur is growing at an accelerated rate! Ruffed lemurs grow quickly, consuming 50-60% of their body weight in milk per day! This equates to gaining approximately 4-8g of weight per day for the first month, then increases to 12-15 grams per day for the next 3-4 months. However, our little girl is a big over-achiever and averaged a weight gain of 10g per day for the first week and 15g per day for weeks two and three!
