KJ (or King Julien) was named after the popular cartoon character. Although he is the most aggressive resident toward humans, he gets along fabulously with most other lemurs. While KJ had never lived with other lemurs before, like many former pet lemurs, his young age helped him to integrate into a sanctuary group. 

KJ's heroes are Steven and Maria Garbutt, who fully funded KJ's 2021 costs. Many thanks to the Garbutts!
