Housing Lemurs In captivity
Baby Lemur can be reared in caged captivity or indoors provided optimal survival temperatures meet. Ideally, these temperatures should be between 65° F – 85° F (18 and 29° C).
Keeping lemurs in captivity may involve restricting them behind cage enclosures, open enclosures and Island enclosures. The ring-tailed lemur for example, requires a cage enclosure of 2.5mm wire diameter and 25mm*25mm maximum dimension of the mesh. Island enclosures on the other hand have a 3.0 m moat width as a minimum, with 0.5 m as the minimal height of the perimeter moat wall. The perimeter moat wall’s water should have a minimum depth of 0.9 meters. The moat should have an upward slope facing the land.
When kept indoors as pets, good ventilation should be provided for to allow sufficient airflow. It is advisable that keepers have a good knowledge of handling and husbandry techniques of the species. A second appointed competent handler should be available just in case of owner absenteeism or incapacitation.
Breeding Pet Lemur
Breeding lemurs in captivity is a difficult task due to targeted aggression, which necessitates the forehand removal of males in the mating group. Breeding pairs should also be kept in isolation for guaranteed offspring paternity.
What do lemurs eat?
Pet Lemurs in any form of captivity should be fed with starchy vegetables, fruits, leafy vegetables and greens. Fruits should include bananas, apples, oranges and grapes that are relatively available all year round. Seasonal fruits should also be provided. Vegetables should include cucumbers, green beans, broccoli and celery. Feed Lemurs in captivity once or two times daily. It is important to practice diet rotation to provide variety.
Fresh water availability is necessary. Chopping food into equal portions enables each group member to access preferred food that can comfortably fit into their small mouths. Keepers are supposed to give several times throughout the day and in different tree levels and locations. This effectively restricts aggression and crowding around feeding zones. Diet selectivity and obesity may result from chronic overfeeding. Thus, feeding is planned such that left over or uneaten food should not exceed 15% of the diet.
Lemur Veterinary Care.
Lemurs in captivity are sensitive and need optimal veterinary care to survive. Those owning a lemur as a pet or keeping it in captivity, regardless of which type, need to administer annual frequent veterinary health checks to these animals and make any necessary treatments. These checks include;
- Regular fecal check-ups for worm egg floats and frequent de-worming treatment for various worm infestations
- Annual tests for Tuberculosis infection
- Tests for blood sugar levels to check for obesity due to weight gain, and iron levels to test for haematochromatosis
- Frequent checks for microchips and whether they are still in the location of administration
- Sanitize and clean the enclosures frequently. Check for and remove snails or slugs as they present the risk of Rat lungworm infection.
