Lemurs are a special group of primates found only on Madagascar and the Comoro Islands. There are 50 species of lemurs and 17 are on the endangered species list.
Lemurs are prosimians, or primative primates. They are social animals with long limbs, flexible toes and fingers, and long noses.

Habitat loss is the main threat to lemurs today, as people clear their native forests for farm land.

You usually manage to get the neatest facial expressions. I think some, like George the elephant and the flirty camel, must look for you and get ready to pose.
Cool photos and I'm lovin' it. Nita
