Adopt Vatobe

G’day, my name is Vatobe. I’m a very handsome ring-tailed lemur! I have a gentle and loving nature and a huge personality. I love nothing more than food, especially banana!

I spend my days exploring my awesome home on Bindi’s Island where I live with my troop of 12 other lemurs. My favourite things to do include foraging for fresh vegetation, wrestling, grooming and snoozing with my troop.  I am known to strike several spectacular, meditation-like poses in order to warm my belly. Keep your cameras handy because I love a good pose!

I know you will fall in love with my charm, but I am here at Australia Zoo to raise awareness for my species. Ring-tailed lemurs are an endangered animal and my wild counterparts are in desperate need of our support!

* Each guest pass is valid for a single day entry only, to be used within 12 months of adoption purchase. For Gold, Platinum and Ultimate adoptions, guest passes can be used for multiple single day entries for one person, or single day entries for up to the specified amount of people. For Gold or Platinum adoptions, if you are unable to use the included guest passes you can opt to swap the guest passes for a plush toy animal.

^ Subject to availability and must be pre-booked to avoid disappointment. Age, group size and animal restrictions apply; animal encounters are subject to the usual encounter terms and conditions for each animal. Due to health and safety restrictions, saltwater crocodiles are not available for guest encounters; another animal/species will be substituted.

Please note: While all of the animals available for adoption are usually on display at the Zoo and/or participate in encounters, adopting an animal does not guarantee the chance of seeing or meeting them if visiting the Zoo. Animal availability is subject to change; there may be times when animals may be temporarily off display due to unforeseen circumstances, such as veterinary check-ups or enclosure maintenance. If booking one of our amazing animal encounters to meet your adoptee, please advise staff of the animal you adopt at the time of booking.

Animal adoptions and associated elements are non-refundable, non-transferable and not redeemable for cash.

It is important to note that adopting an animal does not provide a company or organisation license to promote Australia Zoo across their channels. If you desire to include in advertising and/or collateral including your website, further discussions will be required. If interested, please let us know and we can organise a meeting. Thank you again for your support!

*Please allow up to 3 weeks for the delivery of your gift pack, if applicable.
