    1. It's a Madagascan Ring-Tailed Lemur, Heather. They're an endangered species, so I don't think you should be trying to eat any!! LOL.

  4. We have exactly the same saying: Ikke bit over mer enn du kan tygge. Excellent image :-)

    Your picture reminds me of the images of Tim Flash- I posted a link to his website on my Wordpress earlier today http://amalievonbergen.wordpress.com/photographers/tim-flash/

    1. Thanks Riete. If you watch a group of them, you quickly realise they each have their own individual character.

  13. It looks somewhat like our common raccoon which is a real menace in our cities and far from endangered. Here is mine

    1. The similar appearance to the raccoon is superficial. They are smaller and lighter than a raccoon and not aggressive. Their natural habitats in Madagascar are slowly being destroyed by the activities of man.
