Lemurs celebrate Thanksgiving at SF Zoo
SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco Zoo served up Thanksgiving dinner Wednesday -- except instead of turkey, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie, the diners are feasting on fruit salad, sweet potatoes and monkey food.
The diners were 15 lwere in decorated boxes.
Zoo officials said the exercise is part of the zoo's behavioral enrichment program and is a way to engage the lemurs and help them to get more exercise.
The group consisted of six ring-tailed, four red-ruffed, three black-and-white, and two black lemurs, according to the zoo.
