Could there be a pair lemurs on the loose on Sanibel?
City officials originally dismissed sightings of the Madagascar primates as cases of mistaken identity, but after three reports, they’re asking people to be on the lookout for these ring-tailed critters.
“Over the past three weeks, the City of Sanibel has received three reports of a pair of animals matching the description of ring-tailed lemurs. Unfortunately, none of the sources were able to photograph the animals,” according to a release from the city’s department of natural resources. “Lemurs, especially ring-tailed lemurs, are found in zoos worldwide (including locally at the Shell Factory in North Fort Myers and the Naples Zoo) and may legally be kept as pets in Florida with a FWC Class III wildlife permit.”
