Hesperus the DLC's only remaining male black lemur male turned 34 today, further cementing his position as the oldest black lemur ever housed at the Lemur Center. Second oldest is Hesperus' mate Harmonia who will also turn 34 in June and, just like Hesperus, is still alive and well (the third oldest DLC housed black lemur was Polydorus who died in 2014 at the age of 28). Over the years there have been 111 black lemurs living at the DLC. I am not sure what this adorable old pair's secret to longevity is, but over the years they have garnered quite a fan club. Today Hesperus celebrated his big day with a special birthday concoction lovingly prepared by his technician, Becca, which, despite his lack of teeth, he managed to gobble down without problem!
