Baby Mouse lemur pipped to the post!
Our cute baby mouse lemur is now called Pip. Our winning name, chosen at random, was suggested by Abigail Cooke on Facebook!
Like all lemurs, mouse lemurs hail from Madagascar. The Latin word lemures means 'ghost' and Malagasy people have traditionally associated these primates with spirits because they are active at night, and perhaps because of their eerie, large-eyed stare!
Ours are certainly as quiet as a mouse ... and a ghost!
