The one in the top image has a pensive look. I am having trouble telling where one animal leaves off and another begins in image #3, and even whether two or three animals are depicted. The ambiguity kinda piques my curiosity.

Thanks Alan. As far as I can remember there were two lemurs in the last shot

The first appears to have her baby in lap. I agree that the last does appear as if there's a third party somewhere in the huddle, but probably not.

Now that you mention it, Mark, I think you're right about the top image. That said, I am still not convinced about the bottom image has only two lemurs in it. Instead, I think that two of the three legs and the big tail belong to an adult on the bottom of the "dogpile" whose head and upper body are hidden under/behind the two half-grown lemurs on top. The tail of one of the lemurs, probably the juvenile's on the right, as well as one of the legs, as well as both the legs of the lemur on the left, are hidden.

Can't be absolutely sure; but whenever I have seen/taken shots of ringtail lemurs I have noticed that the adult/juveniles always keep their head in the open & eyes open for danger. Unlike babies with mums they don't hide their heads in other lemurs body

For whatever it's worth, none of the lemurs in these images is looking directly at you, so you probably don't present much of a threat to them. I also never claimed that the adult's head - if there is one - was buried; just that it was hidden from your view. The adult's head, if present, is most likely fully exposed and visible from a direction far to your right or left or on the opposite side of the dogpile from you. I doubt that this controversy will ever be resolved, but that's OK; it's still a fun picture to look at (and argue about).
