We commented before that conservationists trying to save the Aye Aye Lemur were facing an uphill struggle due to the creature’s unique, some might say downright ugly, looks (although our readers quickly reminded us of the old adage that beauty is in the eye of the beholder). Either way, we suspect that environmentalists working with the crowned verreauxi sifakas, another type of lemur, should not have their work cut out if the above photo is anything to go by. Could there be anything cuter? The picture is part of an excellent set of wildlife photographs currently showing over at The Guardian. Click below the fold for an utterly adorable panda, but remember that weird animals need protecting too.
