Why do lemurs "sun-worship?"
Since their bellies are not protected from the cold, they warm up by basking in the sunlight before foraging.
How do female lemurs carry newborns?
In their mouths until their young can cling to the fur on their stomachs or backs.
Why do male lemurs get in "stink" fights?
They rub their tails in their own scents and shake at a foe that may respond with physical aggression or by fleeing.
