For 42 days, 2.5 month old blue eyed lemur infant, Leigh has been living by herself in a small cage after being seriously injured in a fight between her mom, Margret and her sister Hendricks. She is doing well, eating solid food on her own, playing on her stuffed animals, climbing challenging branches, and visiting with mom and dad (Tarrantino) who have access to the outside of her cage. In just a month or so, Leigh should be independent enough to hopefully be introduced back to her parents. Today technician Allie decorated a new, larger cage for Leigh and here she stands, on the comfort of her favorite stuffed animal, surveying her new domain before setting off to explore. Fresh food, new branches and freshly laundered fleece and Cheshire cat: things are looking up for Leigh!
