Love those eyes. Looks cuddly and intense all at the same time. It reminds me of Lucky's eyes, my black cat with the hypnotic stare. ;)
I love Lemurs, all of them, the tiny mouse lemurs, the absolutely amazing Aye-Aye, the sweet crowned lemurs, the nearly extinguished Indri-indri -who inspired me as a nickname :-) -. As you say they are cuddly, independent and affective as cats can be.
Hi! now I saw your's nickname! I like It, Elios
That's right Elios, Lemurs are prosimians, thus older than apes or monkeys, this makes them maybe our very earliest ancestors. As I'm fond of lemurs I took these species as my nickname :-).
Thanks for Like !
great shot indri!! best regards from Spain:D I must go to Madagascar to see the lemurs:D
Hello diego_cue! If you want to see the indri-indri you must indeed go to Madagascar, and even there you can find them in only two places in the East. They cant be kept in captivity and starve themselves to death in every Zoo they've tried to breed them. Other lemur species are more or less found in every mayor Zoo.
Thanks for the visit and for your kind comment!
Greetings from Belgium, indri
So, this is where your double-indri comes from!
Haha, you're absolutely right Daan. The real indri-indri are monogamous, gentle, vegetarians (O K I'm not), they yell a lot but harm nobody and are threatened with extinction. When I had to choose a nickname (I thought it was a must) they came to my mind as being our (possible) oldest ancestors thus being fitted as possible godfathers :-)
Cheese, keep on smiling.
Talking of ancestors and Madagascar's lemurs: the latter seem to occupy quite an interesting place in the great scheme of things! Cheese, Daan
Due to the isolated position of Madagascar the lemurs weren't driven away by the much more aggressive monkeys, as it occurred in Africa, sadly enough their survival is now threatened because of the massive deforestation by humans.
