“We pre­pared eight moon­cakes for these ring-tailed lemurs. They can­not eat too much, oth­er­wise they may get di­a­betes.”

So said a feeder at Bei­jing Zoo. On MidAu­tumn Fes­ti­val (Septem­ber 24), the zoo pre­pared spe­cial moon­cakes for their an­i­mals. Pan­das en­joyed moon­cakes with steamed corn-bread and egg stuff­ing, and ring-tailed lemurs had the most “lux­u­ri­ous” moon­cake – a multi-grain bread with sun­flower seeds, sesame and raisins. Ac­cord­ing to zoo man­age­ment, to en­sure the health of their an­i­mals, these moon­cakes are made from their daily fod­der, and the qual­ity and quan­tity of the moon­cakes have also been strictly con­trolled.
