Primate + Feline = Lemur


Mostly grey with white underparts, the Ring-tailed Lemur has a slender frame; their narrow face is white with black lozenge-shaped patches around the eyes, and a black vulpine muzzle. The lemur's trademark, the long, bushy tail, is ringed in black and white. Like all lemurs, the Ring-tailed Lemur has hind limbs longer than their forelimbs; the palms and soles are padded with soft, leathery skin. Their fingers are slender and dextrous with flat, sharp nails. The Ring-tailed Lemur has claws on the second toe of the hind limb specialized for grooming purposes.

Mama animals with their babies. . .does it get any cuter than that? And I learned a new word today, vulpine=foxlike. Thank you!

Thank you for not posting Zoboomafoo. Real lemurs...there is no substitute. I do hear they really like to "MOVE IT".
