I had a lovely time at the zoo's Spring Fling despite the cloudy weather.
It didn't really rain -- it spitted.
The primates were the featured species that morning.
I love visiting the lemurs.
They are always entertaining!
"There's the crazy woman with the camera .... again."
"Quick -- turn your back."
"Maybe she'll go away."
The crowned lemur is found in the dry deciduous forests of northern Madagascar. Its diet is made up mostly of flowers, fruits and leaves. It is a medium-sized lemur with a distinctive chestnut-orange crown pattern on their head. They have pseudo-opposable thumbs, binocular vision, are highly intelligent and are on the endangered threatened list. The forests in Madagascar are being destroyed by mining, farming and some lemurs are killed for food or kept as pets.
Thank you to Misty for hosting Camera Critters for 5 years!
