and he is a Sifaka. (That sentence is here so that when people ask me, “What kind of animal is that?” I can look up this post and tell them. Thank you, internet memory.)
Remember that post I wrote about Kate’s daughter Grace who works for Joel Sartore, the famous photographer? Well, Grace saw it, and she gave me a present! Woo-hoo!!
I love it, Grace! Thank you so much!
A sifaka is a kind of lemur, though Dean is not King Julian. This picture was taken at the Houston Zoo, I believe, and I love his expression. Royal or not, I think he is adorable, and he looks pretty dang good on my kitchen wall.
Here is a great interview with Joel Sartore that explains why he does what he does. It’s very sweet and thought-provoking. God bless him for using his talents to be a force for good! (You can see Dean at 1 minute 10 seconds.)
