This lemur is deep in thought
The primate looks remarkably lifelike in this series of poses captured at a Russian zoo.

Photographer Olga Yermolava, who captured the rare and remarkable moment, said: "I am so happy I managed to capture the lemur's expression before it moved. Its pose is so human that it makes a very funny picture".

What is he plotting?
Olga who often frequents the small zoo in Nizhny Novgorod on the weekends is a keen watcher of the lemurs and is no stranger to them pulling faces and poses.

"Generally lemurs have very rich facial expressions and it is always interesting to watch them."

She said this character reminded her of the charismatic King Julian from the film Madagascar.
