Marley

Ring-tailed lemur, Lemur catta

Male (neutered)

Born: ~April 2006

Arrival: 9 January 2016

Marley is a former pet who became too aggressive to manage safely in a human home. Pet trade breeders think hand-rearing makes lemurs better pets, but it actually leads to loss of natural avoidance behavior toward humans; if they are not afraid of you, they also have no fear of attacking. Marley adapted well to living with other lemurs and is most closely bonded to Lulu. 

 

Marley's 2019 care expenses are 75% covered by his generous sponsor, Jean Pessolano.
