The rare ring-tailed lemur has fathered four sets of twins with four different partners.

这只稀有的环尾狐猴与四只母狐猴产下了四对双胞胎。

And now the twins have become the new stars at Wellington Zoo in New Zealand.

现在,这四对双胞胎已经成为新西兰惠灵顿动物园的新明星。

Lisa Ridley, Wellington Zoo, New Zealand
"It's a first. We're all in shock, to be honest. It means that this boy here, this is Zeus, the father, has done his job. And to be honest, he has a tough job because he only has a 24 to 36 hour window while they're in that season. And they only breed once a year. So, he got around very well."

丽莎·里德利 新西兰惠灵顿动物园
“这是前所未有的。老实说,我们都很震惊。新生狐猴的数量之多意味着宙斯完成了它做爸爸的愿望。说实话,它也很难,因为繁殖期的窗口只有24到36小时。而且环尾狐猴每年只繁殖一次。所以他做得非常好。”

The twins were born in August and September. Ring-tailed lemurs, endemic to Madagascar, are classified as an endangered species.

这四对双胞胎狐猴生于八月和九月。环尾狐猴,马达加斯加特有的品种,已被列为濒危物种。
