(Avondale) -- The Cincinnati Zoo has a new lemur on display. The baby sifaka was born earlier this month to parents who arrived at the zoo for breeding purposes less than a year ago.

Curator of Mammals Mike Dulaney says the Madagascar natives don't normally give birth until January or February. The female, Willamenia, came from the Duke Lemur Center, in North Carolina. Rinaldo, came from the Los Angeles Zoo.
Dulaney says there are only ten zoos in the U.S. with sifakas. The total population in the country is around 50. Dulaney says in the wild, the animals are often hunted for food, and their habitat is shrinking.
The baby has not been named.
