Tuesday morning was chilly at the Lemur Center, but the sun made an appearance for the first time in nearly a week! Free ranging lemurs did not waste a second heading for their favorite early morning sunning spots. Here, one year old Gemina dangles from a sweetgum tree branch, assuming a position which guarantees maximum solar exposure to her dark belly. Her parents Martin, left, and Matilda are content to adopt more conservative, and less energy intensive, sunning postures. Except for one night, lemurs have been able to free range from January 15th until this afternoon when they must be confined to their cozy indoor quarters due to the arrival of a cold front-- a great free ranging run for mid-winter for our animals!
