Lemurs

lemurs (Photo by Lee Spangler)Lemurs are primates native to Madagascar. Their name originates from the Roman word for ghosts or spirits (lemures). Did you know that lemurs were the original surfers? They landed on their island home about 65 million years ago by sailing on mats made of vegetation. They evolved and diversifed in order to adapt to the extremes of climate found in Madagascar. Now due to human expansion and activity, 90 of the 101 lemur species are on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, and 20% are classed as Critically Endangered. Lemurs are not monkeys, but are in a related group called prosimians. Whether you're looking for a collectible plastic lemur or a plush lemur to cuddle, you've come to the right place!
