Keeper prepared a nutritious meal for ring-tailed lemurs – Moses, Dogwood, Ramses and Butch. This included a turkey made out of primate biscuits with honey, steamed corn and green beans, mashed potatoes with banana baby food for gravy, cranberry sauce made of sugar free gelatin and dried cranberries, and pumpkin and sweet potato pie with a primate biscuit crust and popcorn that served as whipped cream. They also received apple juice to wash it all down.
