Blue Lemur

by Thwaite in All Gods Creatures

A Mongoose Lemur, one of a pair at Bristol Zoo Gardens. You can tell he is a male on account of his red chest whereas the female of the species has a white chest. The tail he is holding like a fur coat is his as well by the way.

      Thank you, for some reason the eyes really stand out on every photo I have ever taken of a lemur. I think that's why I like photographing them so much.
