Once in a while, the Corpus Christi's Animal Care Services will get one of those out the ordinary finds. A 2 1/2 year old Ring Tailed Lemur would be the latest.
It was discovered several days ago on Jester Drive in Flour Bluff. He was a little shy and cautious around our camera , but he's said to be very domesticated.
The lemur's owner apparently didn't want him anymore, so the prohibited pet was turned over to the city.
Community Education Officer, Dennis Noble says when the Lemur came in, he had an injured right shoulder, and he might have difficulty getting much use out of the arm.
Tuesday, he was placed in a rescue facility in San Antonio called "Primarily Primates."
