  4. Yes, splendid, Ferdy! I already had the association about King Julien with the prior lemur photos you posted over the last day, but this one here is perfect. One might even think the movie people had this picture in mind when they created "Julien"... Posted 10 years ago
    1. I wouldn't be surprised, Gernot. It is quite common for cartoonists to study real animals as inspiraton for their animated characters. Don't forget about Julien's cousin either:

      More wine please What is it with Lemurs and their lazy arrogance? It is perhaps because they are the rulers of Madagascar, the only place where they naturally occur?

      1. Yes, that's another great one, Ferdy! Btw: I just looked at Ludo's 3D-python, and it really reminded me of Kaa from Walt Disney's Jungle Book. You're certainly right: When cartoonists are prepairing on animated movies with wild animals starring, they must take a very close look at their "actors" to get started. Posted 10 years ago

The ring-tailed lemur is a large strepsirrhine primate and the most recognized lemur due to its long, black and white ringed tail. It belongs to Lemuridae, one of five lemur families, and is the only member of the "Lemur" genus. Like all lemurs it is endemic to the island of Madagascar and endangered.
