Ruffed Lemurs

Discussion in 'Other Animals' started by DanielD, Jul 7, 2008.

  1. One of ours zoos has a big enclosure with two gates and a path leading through it which is open for visitors. Its funny to see those lemurs that close (and without a fence or glass in front of the lens :smile:) . The drawback is that once one of them comes to the path, there's quickly a crowd of visitors around blocking the view :) mad:) . I got some decents snaps nevertheless. (but can do better)

  2. Great shots!!!

    Are they generally spazzes?
    I know nothing about lemurs.:biggrin:
     
  3. They're certainly cute little critters! Makes me wanna sing that song from the movie - "I wanna move it, move it, just like that!" Madagascar

    I clicked on this post accidentally after misreading the title as "Ruffled Lemurs" - I'm a lemur fan but was very intrigued to see some mad lemurs. Alas - not ruffled lemurs (although #2 looks a bit mad) but I'm very glad I looked - great shots! I keep meaning to go to the local zoo and check out the meerkats (my personal favorite just ahead of lemurs).
     
  7. Thanks all. They weren't more mad than little monkeys are in general, and only a tad more mad than the human monkeys watching them :wink:.
    #2 was taken when it was yelling to the rest of the gang, hence the funny look. (the complete set is here)

    Those are really nice. Man that last one looks like some movie actor but I can't get the name....

    Excellent - I LOVE #4. We have ring tailed lemurs at our zoo - they are fantastic.

    Nice captures. They sure have some intensive eyes, eh?!
