Ring-tailed lemur, Lemur catta
Born: ~May 2015
Arrival: 15 Aug 2016
Oliver was an illegal pet in Colorado, a state where pet lemurs are not allowed. After an incident publicized in the media where Oliver bit a toddler, wildlife officials confiscated him and sent him to the Prosimian Sanctuary. After completing a mandatory rabies quarantine, Oliver was successfully integrated into a social group with other lemurs.
