Chiclette the Lemur, 1983

This is Chiclette, a baby collared lemur. She was born at the Duke Primate Center (now the Duke Lemur Center) on April 6, 1983. She weighed only 27 grams, one-quarter of the weight of a normal infant. You can read more about her in the article "Creature Query" in the May-June 2006 issue of Duke Magazine. For more about collared lemurs, see the Collared Lemur page on the Lemur Center's site.
