You never know when some random facts about lemurs might come in handy (such as in the daily Avocado Trivia Tournament), so here we go!
(Collapsible header for mobile Avocados. I don’t understand you, but I support you!)
Female lemurs run the show in lemur society, and they’re often kind of jerks about it. Misandry! Side note: A group of lemurs is called a conspiracy, so female lemurs control lemur conspiracies. It figures. Ladies are such gossips.
Of course we weren’t talking about you, Fran.
Lemurs range in size from the 2.5-inch pygmy mouse to the 2.5-foot indri. Their cuteness is inversely related to their size.
Okay, the indri is still cute, but it looks like a small human in a lemur suit. I bet it opens pickle jars like a champ.
Male lemurs work out their issues via “stink fights,” wherein they get their tails all stinky and waft them at each other to settle disputes.
Now this will be a straight stink off, old school rules.
Lemurs are the only primates, besides humans, that can have blue eyes. As with humans, it really raises the creepy factor.
I have these eyes too; I’m allowed to say it.
Here are some cool lemurs I met at the zoo.
And I saw one of the lemurs, and the lemur licked at me.
Have a wonderful day, everyone! Happy Thanksgiving Eve (or, for our non-American friends, Happy Wednesday)!
