Lemurs and Snakes!

Two sets of press images hit my in bin today that I had to share. First, Busch Gardens Tampa sent out these photos of two baby red-ruffed lemurs that were born at the park in April.

How cute are they! From the park: "All species of lemurs are native to the island of Madagascar. Red-ruffed lemurs are one of nearly about 50 lemur species. Busch Gardens is home to five lemur species. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service considers all lemurs endangered, largely due to habitat destruction."

The new lemurs are available for viewing by guests in the park's Jambo Junction.

Now to totally switch gears to snakes.... that massive one at Kings Island just gave it's 2,000,000th ride on Sunday.

Stephanie Rogers from Greenfield, Indiana was the lucky rider number two million. That certainly didn't take very long for the park to achieve!
