We discovered on Wednesday that the Malagasy call the Indri lemurs, babakoto. So maybe we should rename the blog!
We will leave you with some photos of the domesticated, ex-pet lemurs at Vakona Lodge, whom we got to know quite well! The fur is very soft, and their licks very gentle!
|Simon, Matthew and 2 black & white lemurs|
|The mobbing! First banana of the day|
|Matthew, and the brown lemur we named Grabber!|
|A bamboo lemur - eating bamboo. They are shy and don't climb on you.|
|... and baby|
If you want to see more photos (if you can bear it!) or share a Malagasy-style dinner (we promise the food is not unusual) and hear all about the Babbs' recent trip to Madagascar, join us at St James the Less on Wednesday, August 13 at 6:00pm. Please email / contact Sue, if you plan to come so that there will be sufficient food.
