Must Try

Sebastian grew up on a goat farm in rural Wisconsin. He learned a lot about different animals as a youngster. While he is no longer in charge of feeding the kids, he still helps maintain the family farm on the weekends. In his free time, he travels the world and finds every opportunity to escape in nature.

The gray mouse lemur is an adorable animal who recently gained popularity after the famous animated movie Madagascar came out. Currently, not much is known about this species of lemur. However, the few known facts tell us that this creature is fairly different from the rest of its kind.
