Cheetahs In My Shoes

living with the imaginary menagerie and all that it entails

Ring Tailed Lemurs

Leave a comment

Here’s the second in my essentially photo posts from our last visit to ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.  With a bit of Google research I discover the collective term for a group of lemurs is a ‘troop’.  I am sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong!  The group at Whipsnade are the very distinctive Ring Tailed Lemurs are an all male group – seeing out their retirement years in comfort and entertaining a few folk at the same time.  The Cheetah Keeper’s sister knows all the answers to the questions asked during the feeding talks – her brother just loves the fact that they have stinky scent pads on their ‘wrists’ so they can stink fight with each other.

Now the clocks have changed, Whipsnade is open later so we’ll be able to go up after school for picnic teas – I bet the lemurs will be looking at us and thinking “not them again“!
