"Ma'am, There's a Lemur on Your Baby."

All parents dread that, someday, they will hear those words spoken to them. For Angie Widener, that possibility became a reality when she visited the Tanganyika Wildlife Park in Goddard, Kansas. There, animals roam a bit more freely than at conventional zoos.

The park doesn't allow visitors to bring in strollers, so Widener brought her nine week-old daughter Finley in with her car seat. She and her other children were having a great time. Then a passerby noticed that Finley had made a new friend:

She told HuffPost over e-mail that she was watching her two older children feed the animals when she heard a stranger laugh and say, "Um, ma'am, there is a lemur on your baby."

"I was shocked, but the zookeeper assured me she was safe, so my two older daughters and I got a few laughs and we snapped some pictures," Widener said. Pictures that have now made our day.

Ah, I have been there! You can feed the lemurs cranberries and, of all things, you can feed the rhinoceros. Yeah, rhino feeding time! Pure awesome!
