    Monkey!!! :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:
    (and lemur?)

    Although, I think technically, legally speaking, you aren't allowed to photograph anything that's not creepy and insecty.

    Zada is correct, so lemurs arent real monkeys but very close relatives :) And these were shot in a zoo.
    Sorry i went out and shot other things than bugs, but summer is kinda ending here and the bugs are starting to find a place to get through winter :)
    Thanks for the comments everyone :)

    Lemurs are endemic to the island of Madagascar, this means that they are only found on this island. Something like 98% of Madagascar's species are only found on the island and this is because way back in evolution the island was sepearated from all the other land masses and its species evolved completely independently of everything else on Earth. So, as somebody else put, they are closely related, but are not actually monkeys (Zada: prosimians is the correct spelling).

    Great shots doenoe. Are you on DA? We have a primate club if you're interested at all. It is called primateclub if you want to look it up.
