Eulemur macaco
Number 0150

Here’s a portrait of me and Ted! Maybe not, but Ted did request a black lemur. He was inspired by this fantastic photograph by Joel Sartore. Like all lemurs, the black lemur is native to Madagascar. That means they’re Malagasy! The female, on the left here, looks a lot different from the male, as you can plainly see. Also, there are two varieties of black lemur: the regular one shown here and another called the blue-eyed lemur.
