1972

Legendary sifaka Nigel born in 1972 to wild caught parents Charlotte and Reginald, was the second surviving sifaka to be born at DLC. After his sister died in 1977, Nigel was the only sifaka in captivity until the mid 80s when more were imported from Madagascar, and Nigel found the mate of his dreams. He lived until he was 30 years old (a longevity record for this species), and fathered 9 offspring, three of which still survive (Rupillia, Julian and Gratian).
