Watching the lemurs debate how to handle the turtle blocking the path to their habitat was hysterical. After many had walked up to Mr. Turtle and turned around, one decided to brave it and jump over him. What followed was just as much fun to watch as the initail drama as several lemurs began a game of 'lemur hopscotch.'

Thanks for looking!
