THIS JUST IN: Dimbi’s Debut

Or, as the Parc Zoologique & Botanique de Mulhouse in France would say, “Voila!”, which literally means, jeepers creepers where’d ya get those peepers?
Dimbi, the blue-eyed black lemur, a critically endangered species (boo, hiss), was born on March 8 (yay!) and just recently made his first public appearance.
See for yourself!





Can’t…  look…  away…

And you can see even more about Dimbi over at Zooborns.


  1. Oh nice, now there are lip marks on my screen where I tried to smooch the bebeh right on the leeps ..

  2. He looks exactly like a Golem with fur.

  3. Theresa says:

    A Gollum, perhaps?

  4. Right. Didn’t know how to spell it.

    *just rented and watched The Hobbit the other day*

  5. I vote for Gollemur.

  6. Martha in Washington says:

    That sound you hear is my soul being sucked right through the computer screen and into those baby blues.

  7. bluebird says:

    I could have sworn I had a soul when I left for work this morning!

  8. Love, love, love lemurs!

  9. doomchild says:

    Yea right, next you’ll try to convince me that thing’s real. Come on peeps!

    What, what’s this “psychological defense mechanism” you’re talking about?

  10. Poor little guy, he looks like he is in a wind tunnel.

  11. Shelley says:

    This guy is critically photogenic.

  12. Stressfactor says:

    I’m actually torn. On the one hand he’s a fuzzy, cute, bebeh. On the other hand there are some elements of Gollum and Dobby to him that kind of give me the hebbie-jebbies…..

    I know there’s a ‘Cute but Sad’ tag but this one may need a ‘Cute but kinda creepy’ tag.

  13. Ma, he’s makin’ eyes at me…….

  14. Damn! He’s cute enough to re-energize my dried up ovaries!

  15. Ma, he’s makin’ eyes at me….

  16. Theresa says:


  17. Rachael says:

    WANT. That is all.

  18. sabrina rose says:

    An amazingly beautiful and appealing little creature. Wide-eyed and curious, still innocent. There are so many, many different creatures in the world. Has CO ever tallied how many species it has posted?

  19. I don’t know what the heck it is but his eyes have stolen my soul.
