Lively Lemurs

June 5, 2022

By Janet Dodrill

Wonderful Live Lemur Animal Life Drawing Session with @animallifedrawing Holly Surplice at Duke Lemur Center @dukelemurcenter with host Sara Clark. Live Coquerel’s Sifaka Lemurs and Ring-Tailed Lemurs in the woods. We watched them eat, groom, rest and nap. Beautiful creatures, and 50% of the session was donated to support the center. The animals gave the nod that they wanted to be left alone, so we sketched from photos that the center provided of a Black and White Ruffed Lemur and Blue-Eyed Black Lemurs.
