Watch: Aquarium's lemurs love frozen treats for their birthday

All three of the Florida Aquarium's ring-tailed lemurs were born in the month of March, so the aquarium staff threw them one big birthday party Thursday to celebrate.

The three -- Remington, Annie Oakley and Emmie Lou -- were treated to three cupcakes of frozen melon, banana and blueberry prepared by the aquarium staff. Their habitat, the new Madagascar exhibit, was decorated with willow and fruit streamers.

The exhibit is located above the Wetlands Trail and features animals native to Madagascar.
