Do you remember the PBS kids' show Zoboomafoo??
It was a super cute show that centered around two brothers, Martin and Chris Kratt, and their lemur co-host Zoboomafoo!
Zoboomafoo was played by both a puppet and a real lemur named Jovian. Sadly, Jovian passed away on Monday at the Duke Lemur Center. The puppet's current condition is unknown.

The Duke Lemur Center just had a couple of babies!
Please give a warm welcome to Hiddleston and Poots! Hiddleston is a male, and Poots is a female, and they are the cutest Blue-Eyed Black Lemurs that we've ever seen!
And if you have trouble discerning the two of them - Hiddleston is the black one and Poots is the reddish brown one - but they're both adorable!!!
Lemurs are not only adorable, but extremely rare. Which is great news that these two precious ones have been born.
The Duke Lemur Center is hoping they are the first of many lemur babies.
Hopefully they can preserve the species this way!
But in the meanwhile we'll just be over here admiring their adorableness!
Check out more pictures of them (below) !!!

Another small bodied, wide eyed cutie joins the party!
We're sure you're still stuffing your brains with lemur and tarsier cuteness, but a baby sifaka wants to join the party in your brain!
The Duke Lemur Center is taking extra care of its newest sifaka, Beatrice of Swabia, who joins mama Rodelinda, papa Marcus and sissy Bertha of Sulzbach.
And guess what?!?! They're ALL named after Roman emperors!
Sifakas are named after their distinct si-FAUK call and only 56 Coquerel's sifakas remain in captivity.
The crazy part? Duke has all of them at their facility!
Check out the cutie (above) as she says hey to the Duke staff!
