28/July/17 At the ripe old age of 33.4 years, black lemur male Hesperus is now the oldest lemur in the DLC colony (and the last surviving black lemur male). Although he obviously is quite handsome, has a good appetite, and is able to navigate his cage like a 28 year old, Hesperus is, unfortunately, in declining health. DLC vets are trying their best to prolong his life for as long as they can (making sure all the while that his life maintains a high quality), so that his mate Harmonia (a mere 33.1 years old) will continue to have a companion (since they don’t make em like Hesperus anymore, and there will be no replacement when his time runs out).
