Black and White Tailed Lemurs

Lemurs are so very cute and I always love watching them when I am at a zoo. Some of the fun things they do just like humans they will gather together in an open area of the forest to sunbathe. Now I know you have seen beaches where bodies are side by side. Once they have found their spot they sit in a position so that their bellies are toward the sun and stretch their arms and legs out to the sides. This gives their underside the most exposure to the sun and warms them up.

On their tails, each lemur has exactly 13 alternating black and white bands. When the lemur group goes walking together they all put up their tails like flag masts so everyone will stay together and it must be like seeing lemurs on parade.

I wonder if anyone could believe that those little furry creatures called lemurs can be evil. These lovable looking creatures come from Madagascar. It is their name that is in question. Apparently the word lemur comes from the Latin word lemures which means ghosts or specters.
