Käpt'n Posted March 26, 2016 Share Posted March 26, 2016 (edited) So on March 20th I went to my favorite zoo again and to my delight I saw that one of the lemurs who I always take photos of had twins! They were just five days old, super tiny and incredibly adorable :3 And the whole group was fighting over who could groom the little ones, it was a little bit like old people fighting over who could kiss the new baby first X3 Now I can finally take pictures regularly of them to document a little how they grow up! And maybe they will get just as attatched to me as their previous offspring so I can hang out with them! Well, so I thought.... Long story short: One of the twins was brutally murdered by one of the adults (bite wound in the torso and the face was pretty much torn off according to one of the zoo keepers) and the other one is still alive but it lost a freaking foot! What the fucking hell! How did they manage to do that?! I mean, infanticide is pretty common among ring-tailed lemurs. So I am actually not entirely surprised about one of them having become the deaded... But come the fuck on! How on earth did they manage to rip off a freaking foot? D: Did they pull on it while fighting over who could groom it? Imagine leaving your newborn kid with its aunts and grandmas and when you come back it's missing a foot because they were fighting over who could hold the baby first... The little bugger is less than two weeks old... What an awful family the poor thing has! XP Edited March 26, 2016 by Käpt'n Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
