A TRIO of ring-tailed lemurs at Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm now have some new names thanks to readers of the Times.

In a competition, members of the public were asked to send in their suggestion for names for three of the latest additions to the Wraxall attraction.

Following the zoo’s tradition of naming animals with the same letter of the species, names beginning with R or L were requested. As a result, the following three names were chosen:

● Rio for the male (suggested by Ian Harper and Bev Robinson)

● Roxie for the mum (suggested by Tara Cooke)

● Rylee for the baby boy (suggested by Abigail Houghton).
