New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

Yesterday was National Endangered Species Day. And, yes, the Black and White Ruffed Lemur from Madagascar (or, in this case, from the Audubon Zoo) is endangered. Lemurs are 'living fossils,' the first of the primates to evolve. They've survived 50 million years, but 'The Age of Man' may wipe them out. Look at those 'hands':  proof we have a common ancestor.
