Two Little Lemurs Love Licking the Lollipops that Had Been Given to Them as a Treat

Mort and Miss Stewart, a couple of little lemurs at the Center for Animal Research and Education in Bridgeport, Texas, really enjoy licking the lollipops that had been given to them as a treat. Unfortunately, the little primates did not get a chance “to get to the center of [their] Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pops“, because their humans decided that too much sugar would not be good for the lemurs.

We decided to give lemurs Mort and Miss Stewart a little treat, lollipops! Lemurs love sugary treats, so we knew it would be a hit, but no idea just how stinking cute they would look enjoying them. Because the candy is so full of sugar, we only let them have them for a little while (they were none to pleased when we took them away), but they still enjoyed every second!
