An up-close look at Duke’s lemurs

The Duke Lemur Center has the largest group of lemurs in the world outside their native Madagascar.  Tours are given Mondays through Saturdays (details here), and they give you the opportunity to get a very close look at the little prosimian primates. You’re never going to get a better opportunity without actually going to Madagascar.

Out in the woods: Lemurs who respond well to training get to run free (within limits) when the weather is sufficiently warm (above 40 for three straight days).
