Marley is a former pet who became too aggressive to manage safely in a human home. Pet trade breeders think hand-rearing makes lemurs better pets, but it actually leads to loss of natural avoidance behavior toward humans; if they are not afraid of you, they also have no fear of attacking. Marley adapted well to living with other lemurs. 

 

Marley needs a sponsor to cover his 2021 expenses.  Will you be his hero?
