    I can’t seem to untangle the, ah, pile. Is it a mom and a bunch of babies?

  2. Lemurpile!

  3. SlaveToCat says:

    I know where to go for cuddles.

  4. Looks like the softest fuzziest bed in the zoo!

  5. I’m also confuzzled by the pile.. looks like a bunch of them wrapped around a large fuzzy pillow but that can’t be, so I guess it’s Mom with youngsters?

    Or are they just very friendly?

  9. Theresa says:

    This pic is impressing on me the enviable awesomeness of having a long, fuzzy, prehensile tail with horizontal stripes.

  10. LOL! Hey, it’s my job.

  11. Confuzzlements begone. See new lemur pic above, complete with red arrows of lemur-detanglement. We promise no lemur-piles were harmed in the process. 🙂

    It’s the fabled lemurdian knot!

    Thanks for the clarification and helpful red arrows.

  14. Group hug! 🙂 I wish I was in the middle of it!

  15. That would look lovely in my living room. Please send now.

  16. Adorable!

  17. Just wait until one of them farts and then you can be sure.
