MELBOURNE, Fla. (AP) - One of the oldest lemurs in captivity has
been euthanized after an illness at the Brevard County Zoo.

Zoo officials say Jenny, who was 41-years-old, loved Craisins
and was friendly enough to let the staff pet her. She died Friday
from liver and kidney problems. She had recently stopped eating.

Jenny lived on the zoo's lemur island with two male ring-tailed
lemurs, a brown lemur and two black-and-white ruffed lemurs.

Lemurs are primates that are native to Madagascar.
