    I have to admit that I was a big fan of lemurs when I was a little kid. I can still remember pestering my mom after coming back home from a trip to the zoo because I really wanted to get one as a pet. Of course, she knew that a lemur would not make an ideal pet, but can you blame me? Next time I am in North Carolina, I will need to take the time to stop by the Duke Lemur Center!
