The zoo-keepers found the baby lemur entwined around his mother's belly, on the morning of his birth. They immediately understood that the mother had difficulties to feed her newborn. With the help of veterinarians, an incubator and a large white Teddy, emblem of the zoo since the opening of the far North area, Olanna resumed normal growth, and it shows. Since, the zoo staff took affection for the little beast.
