Have You Ever Felt as Good as These Sunbathing Lemurs?

Ah, the sensation of sunlight warming one’s belly fur.

Lemurs take lotus position to the next level.

During their morning sunbathing rituals, ring-tailed lemurs sit back, open up their arms, and hug the universe. It’s almost like they’ve gotten high—then again, it wouldn’t be the first time.

Ring-tailed lemurs, native to Madagascar, know how to live that island life, even in zoos far from home.
