    In a world's first for the zoo;

    We've got some fantastic news from Twilight World,one of our aye-ayes has given birth to twins.
    Mum Sabrina has a lot of experience raising young but looking after twins is a first for her and indeed female aye-ayes the world over. Both mum and twins are doing well and can be seen in Twilight World.

    Brilliant news !!!!

    Is this the birth already reported for May or a second birth ? I know they received a new stock but am not certain if this meant they held 2 females .
