Christmas arrived early for some of the animals at Edinburgh Zoo, as Santa stopped by to deliver presents to the lucky Malayan sun bears and ring-tailed lemurs.

First stop was the ring-tailed lemur enclosure, where he handed presents straight into the paws of the residents.

He then took a jolly journey up to the sun bears where he placed presents stuffed with meaty goodness, fruits and nuts under a decorated Christmas tree, before bears Rotana and Somnang were let back in.

Jo Elliott, animal collections manager, said: “Celebrating holidays with the animals is a fantastic way to think creatively about the enrichment we give to them. Lemurs are naturally inquisitive so anything, or anyone, new in their enclosure is of huge interest to them.”
