Playing Favourites At The Bronx Zoo
From the looks of the newest enclosure at the Bronz Zoo, Madagascar has pretty much done for lemurs what Finding Nemo did for clown fish. After years of being out-dazzled by their simian friends, the kids outside their enclosures now jostle for space as energetically as the crowds in front of the apes and spider monkeys. I’m happy for them. They’ve always seemed to me an unassuming species. Their eyes goggle out an appeal.
