TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- Two baby ring-tailed lemurs have made their public debut at the Toledo Zoo.
 
Visitors to the zoo on Saturday became the first members of the public to see the baby lemurs, which are small primates. They have white faces and black around their eyes and on the tops of their heads.
 
The lemurs were born a week apart on March 20 and Wednesday. Their mothers are 6-year-old twin sisters.
 
The zoo says the genders of the newborns aren't known yet but that they're both doing well.
 
Ring-tailed lemurs are listed as a vulnerable species in their native Madagascar. The zoo participates in a plan to promote the survival of the species.
