Photo of the day: Blue-eyed black lemur is tiny, adorable and endangered
A veterinarian bottle-feeds Dimbi, a blue-eyed black lemur cub, on April 19 at the Mulhouse Zoo and Botanical Garden in Alsace, France. Dimbi was rejected by his mother after being born on March 8, prompting zoo staff to step in and raise him.

With more than 90 percent of all lemur species identified as critically endangered, endangered or vulnerable on the IUCN’s Threatened Species list, these small primates are considered the most threatened mammals on the planet. Native to Madagascar, there’s currently less than 2,000 blue-eyed black lemurs like Dimbi in the wild.
