Sour Patch

Ring-tailed lemur, Lemur catta

Male (vasectomized)

Born: ~April 2016

Arrival: 12 Nov 2016

Sour Patch was an orphan anonymously abandoned on the doorstep of a gentleman in New Jersey (a state where pet lemurs are illegal), with nothing but a short note including his name and age. Wanting to provide him with an appropriate environment and socialization, the man brought him to the Prosimian Sanctuary at about 7 months of age. He was fearful of the other lemurs at first and clung to sanctuary personnel for comfort, but after less than one week, Julianne adopted him and became his surrogate mother. They both continue to live together in a nice social group. 

 

Sour Patch currently has no sponsors to help cover his 2019 care expenses!
