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

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

    Or are they just very friendly?

  4. Lemurpile!

    I know where to go for cuddles.

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

  7. 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?

    How can you possibly tell there are five?!?

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

  10. LOL! Hey, it’s my job.

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

    It’s the fabled lemurdian knot!
