Cincinnati, Ohio. USA

Lemur catta hail from Madagascar, but this troop has found a home at the Cincinnati Zoo. Unfortunately, their brothers and sisters are sometimes illegally sold as pets. From a headline in The Guardian last year: "Stray ring-tailed lemur finds temporary home at Sacramento zoo." Zoo officials believe he was an escapee from the illegal wildlife trade. [2013]
