Did someone say brunch? Amanda, the ring-tailed lemur, enjoys some papaya.

Most primates’ noses are flat and dry, but lemurs have long, wet noses similar to dogs. They can smell a favorite fruit from 1000 ft. away.

Thank you Zookeeper Melissa for the photo!

Bonnie Sames! Did you know they really had a lemur named Amanda at the zoo?? All the years thinking it was the monkeys, but really, Amanda is a lemur, not a monkey!

I see she's no longer wearing her little shirt. Now I have to figure out a new way to spot her when I visit.

Sandy Matzke I share my name with a cute critter!
