Fruits, nuts and lemurs
During my visit to England this summer, we went to a zoo park, which is famous for its collection of lemurs.
The newly-introduced black lemur immediately seized domination of the flock. And with eyes like that, who would dare cross him?
At feeding time, he ate first while the other lemurs looked on.
Then came the familiar ring-tailed lemurs, who quickly gobbled up the bulk of the fruit and vegetables.
The two very rare – and timid – red lemurs looked on hopefully, waiting for their turn to eat up the leftovers.
I guess it’s easy to see where we humans get our ideas of power and hierarchy from.
Just like lemurs, I love fruit and nuts… but that old adage springs to mind: You are what you eat.
I wonder what that makes me?
