This baby lemur is the definition of cute

Sophie is named after the Sofia River in Madagascar.

Visitors of Zoo Atlanta should watch out for their hearts – they may be stolen by the park’s newest addition.

Sophie the crowned lemur was born to mother Sava and father Xonsu in April, but her name was announced for the first time on Tuesday.

She and her parents live in Zoo Atlanta’s Living Treehouse habitat, which is also home to two other lemur species and have been the focus of a Facebook takeover.

The crowned lemur baby recently started eating solid foods, and one of her favorite food to munch on is browse or edible foliage. (Video by Patti Frazier) #TakeoverTuesday

Today we have a special crowned lemur #TakeoverTuesday! We will be learning a little more about this little girl, who was born about three months ago to her parents Xonsu and Sava. She’s still mostly wrapped around her mom, Sava, but she’s getting more curious and independent each day. Stick around for a special announcement of the baby’s name at the end of today’s Takeover!
