"Drawtober (Day 8): Lemur"
A Coquerel's Sifaka Swamp Lemur, one among the hundreds of lemurs found in the small island, Madagascar.
If you grew up watching PBS Kids in the 90s like I did, you probably remember seeing this guy on a show called "Zoboomafoo". The show was led by none other than the wildlife specialists The Kratts Brothers, long before the show "Wild Kratts"
Although the lemur character, Zoboo, was portrayed by a puppet for most of the show. He would be switched out with a real Lemur in the beginning and end of the show. This show was a huge part of my childhood, I was actually a little shocked and sad when I found out the real Lemur used to portray Zoboo (who's real name was Jovian) actually passed away back in 2014.
