dramatic animals are so fun

I was searching YouTube for a semi-professional video of Sifaka lemurs 'dancing' (leaping) because I saw some on a BBC wildlife programme called 'Lemurs of Madagascar'; they looked like little furry Rudolf Nureyevs hopping around. Sadly, all dancing lemur-videos were accompanied by a soundtrack of snorting and laughing courtesy of the people taping the scene, so instead, have a dramatic lemur. Could this be the best animal-video since the manatee squash, or the kissing manatees?



Dramatic lemurs > dramatic chipmunks, remember that while I'm away for two weeks.

Oh man, I'm so utterly creeped out now, thanks! I think it's funny that there's this new trend toward "dramatic actions" of animals on the Internet though...

there's definitely a trend of 'dramatic' animal videos but most of them are a bit crap (aside from the original dramatic chipmunk). this lemur-one is my favourite of the ones i've seen so far, it really creeps me out how it just keeps on staring and the music keeps on going.. it starts out looking so sinister and then at the end the lemur just looks completely insane - i crack up every time i see it.
