Lemur Kingdom

Anyone watch the new show on Animal Planet Fri. night Lemur Kingdom?? They are something with those red eyes and bushy ring- tails and leaping and sometime jumping 30 ft. Lemurs are small primates native only to the island of Madagascar and the neighboring Comoro Islands. Some species of lemurs are now extinct, including one ancient lemur said to be as large as a gorilla -- over 400 pounds. Today's lemur species range in size from the tiny pygmy mouse lemur, weighing in at about an ounce, to the 15-pound indri lemur and the sifaka, which are both about the size of a standard house cat. Most lemurs are arboreal, living in trees. They spend most of their time at the top of the rainforest canopy or in the forest midlevel. An exception is the ring-tailed lemur, which spends most of its time on the ground. Lemur females are dominant.
On LK there are two families the Furies the more volatile - made up of several families now led by new leader Amazon who just had a baby and the Graveyard Gang just one family - who live in a graveyard - led by laid back Juno who also had a baby. I think Juno is my favorite Lemur, also like Peg Leg - the oldest Lemur in the Graveyard Gang, he is 13 and has only 3 legs, he lost one of his legs years ago from attack by a wild dog, but he just keeps going and going and even got the prize one week Queen Juno. The biggest threat to these creatures is humans - maybe the message will get through with this show, not only are we losing the rainforest little by little, but there are families living there and moms trying to save their babies. :kiss1:
