Ikoto’s #Feature Friday

This week’s ‪#‎FeatureFriday‬ is Ikoto! Ikoto (i-coo-too) is a Sanford’s Brown Lemur, the last male Sanford’s Brown lemur in captivity. Ikoto was once one of the best free-ranging lemurs at LCF. Now at 24 years old and completely deaf, Ikoto is living the spoiled life in one of our traditional building enclosures with indoor/outdoor access.

Despite his deafness, Ikoto is one of our most vocal lemurs, always letting out a loud croak when he thinks his food isn’t being delivered fast enough. With his long, flowing mane and velvety nose, Ikoto is one of our most handsome lemurs. He now lives with in a bachelor group with his friend Merlot, a Common brown lemur. The pair can often be found curled up in the sun or talking to their neighbors.
