I never knew that lemurs were primates, (that’s right, just like us humans), until Blue Bear and I visited our local Biodome about 3 years ago when they had a Madagascar exhibit. This is the first and only time I ever saw a ring-tailed lemur, or any lemur at all! Lemurs are really adorable. The specific lemurs you see here – mother and child – are from the Singapore zoo. (If you check the link below, there’s another picture of the pair). I chose to post this specific picture for a couple of reasons. First of all, it’s a picture of an adorable mother lemur and her adorable baby; secondly, the mother is chomping away at what appears to be a slice of mango, and it’s always fun to see animals eat; and finally, the baby looks particularly adorable all cuddled up in his mother’s fur!
Yum! Can I have some of that?
