Philippine Flying Lemur



PhotoHunt: HANGING


It doesn't fly and it isn't a lemur! 


But it got its name because of its nocturnal habit and the shape of its fox-like head which are are reminiscent of lemurs. This photo was taken in one of my trip to Bohol with the IT Guy. 

Please visit PhotoHunt's HQ to see what else are HANGING! 

Wish everyone a restful weekend!

It definitely doesn't look like the lemurs at our zoo. He kind of scares me a bit. :)

Hope you can drop by and see my take on the theme!

I thought that the local government has already disallowed individuals to put these flying lemurs in captivity. I really pity this guy..I hope it gets released soon. they don't actually live longer in captivity. Great capture though. happy weekend!

Talk about miss-named! I'd have called it a sloth.

I haven't seen a lemur yet but I think I'd be scared if I saw any. Sure, it's a hanging one.

when I saw your photo, I realized that I had never seen a photo of a lemur, only cartoons or drawings. I love how Photohunter has expanded my horizons
