Leaping Lemurs!

Happy Leap Day! This day only comes around every four years, so today we’re celebrating Monkday with eleven lemurs a-leaping! Lemurs are primates endemic to the island of Madagascar, who love to leap around in the grass, from tree branch to tree branch, or while play-fighting with each other, (or while celebrating Leap Day, of course!)
