2 lemurs join the Oakland Zoo family

OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- Two Crowned lemurs are now on display at the Oakland Zoo, where guests can see them along with ring-tailed lemurs and blue-eyed, black lemurs.

Lemurs come from the island of Madagascar, off Africa's east coast. They're considered endangered because their habitat is being destroyed.

One of the Oakland Zoo's newest lemurs likes to swim, which is rare of their species.
