[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Mongoose Lemur:

This lemur weighs only about three to four pounds. It lives in the dry forests of northwestern Madagascar, where it searches for its diet of nectar, fruit, flowers, and leaves during daytime and night-time hours. A typical group of mongoose lemurs includes an adult male and female with offspring, though larger groups may occur in some habitats. Males can be recognized by their brown cheek hair.

Did You Know?
Despite their small size, mongoose lemurs can live to be more than 30 years old.

Hello Tim,
This is a cute looking character. Good capture, nice and sharp.
But unfortunately it is too small - you can post up to 800 pixels wide.
