Like three tiny bundles of fur, these inquisitive little creatures are two-week old lemurs getting their first view of the outside world.
With tufts of white hair and bright, yellow eyes the three black and white ruffed lemurs are a rare bunch.
The three are the second set of triplets born to Kirindy – a black and white ruffled lemur who lives at Folly Farm, in Kilgetty, Pembrokeshire – in the space of just four years.

Tim Morphew, Folly Farm’s zoo manager, said: ‘It’s great news for Folly Farm to have another successful breeding of this endangered species but even better news when you times it by three.
‘This is Kirindy’s second set of triplets. The first – Harry, Ron and Neville – were born in 2004 and she is coping marvellously with her new offspring.’
Native only to Madagascar, lemurs are listed as an endangered species.
The trio make their first public appearance at Folly Farm
Yesterday it was revealed that comedian and actor John Cleese has had one of the rare furry animals named after him – an honour he said was better than receiving a knighthood or a peerage.
Cleese has championed lemur conservation for many years. As a result of his campaigning work, a new species of woolly lemur was named after him - Avahi cleesei.
