    I visited the Zoo the last time about a year ago and not familiar with the newest changes, but one could imagine that it might be a confusion.

    The guerezas and the ringtailed lemurs have each an walktrough enclosure on their own and the ruffed lemurs an island which can be seen from the guereza exhibit.

    You can see the three different exhibits on the map of the zoo.

    The Sulawesi forset turtle ( Leucocephalon yuwonoi ) is a very rare species and in Europe kept only at Münster Zoo. Here the species was first bred in 2008.
    The species produce normaly only one egg each year and at Münster they are very happy that this year already a second young has hatched and a third egg is still being incubated :) .
