1983

Six year old ring-tailed lemur Sappho gave birth to triplets in June, 1983 in a free range froested enclosure (NHE1). All infants survived to adulthood and this remains the only instance of L. catta triplets in DLC history! The first birth to a free ranging lemur mother occurred the previous year (March, 1982) when both Sappho and her older sister Lysis gave birth to twins in the same free range enclosure.
