Photographer's Note

I came across this sad specimen of a ringtail lemur sitting on the wall of my cabin. He (pretty sure it's a he)is part of a troop of ragtag ringtails that have been rejected by the main troops in the nature reserve, they scavange a living around the tourist accomodation. They seem to survive and breed as the healthier troops in the forest do but they don't get as much attention from the tourists.

I thought it was worth sharing as it is a different side of lemurs that you won't normally see.
