A Group of Little-Known Lemurs



Thanks to the animated film, Madagascar, most children and their parents are familiar with the Ring-Tailed lemur. But there are many species--most endangered--that deserve a little attention, too. BTW, "group" is the official collective noun for lemurs, but I think it should be something different, like "prank" or "chatter". How do I go about getting that changed?

Lemurs are a varied bunch; some are loud (the Black and White Ruffed) and some take diet tips from the giant panda (the Golden Bamboo). From the Red-Ruffed (above) to the papyrus-munching  Lac Alaotra Gentle lemur, the Ark in Space has a great round-up of pictures and info about King Julien's closest relatives. Link

Whatever, the Jungle Book is a masterpiece of wisdom, but you don't know it, instead you know what a Black Panther looks like, and you can sing along to the Bare Necessities. But you don't gather the anagogical meaning behind Kiplings work. Wow, look at the cute monkeys, let us forget what they are saying "All of us say so, so we must be right!"
