When first seeing this image my first thought was.....the eyes have it. Terrific image of mother and offspring.

Beautiful image of the pair of lemurs, but the ID in not correct. The colour of the muzzle of the Verreaux's extends all across the face and above the eyes. These are ring tailed lemurs.

Greg, you're absolutely correct. I must be on another planet when I posted this. Thanks for pointing it out. Info adjusted accordingly.

Totally charming- love their big eyes, and the mother's attentive head turn. Couldn't be sweeter-love it!

Very sweet image of the mom and her baby. The intense look from the baby is fantastic!
