So I wanted to make more people aware of the existance of blue eyed lemurs (also known as Sclater’s lemurs or blue-eyed black lemurs) because they’re super awesome and sadly nearly extinct. (Seriously, look them up.)
The photos on top were taken by my boyfriend and me at the Apenheul park, a primate park that houses two couples of these animals and has a special project to raise money for them.
In 2010 or so I made two character designs and called them Lindy and Hop. I kind of made them with the thought to be turned into costumes, and that’s what my boyfriend and me did in 2011. They’ve been walking around in Disneyland Paris and at zoos, and kids really dig them! I still hope they get to walk around in Apenheul and raise money for their family in Madagascar!

This made me so happy to see this omg. I love these guys, I am actually doing research on them for my primate behavior class. I would love to work with them in the future, lemurs are my favorite thing ever.
