Looks like a lemur to me, the Sifikas lemur is known as the dancing lemur. Not that I am any kind of monkey expert, not even sure lemurs are monkeys, to be honest, but that cheeky thing looks like one, but I ain’t David Attenborough so don’t take my word for it

Ok, perhaps not falling but the ceiling was leaning, and that was good enough for me to jump into action.

Without waiting for the alarm bells to ring, a request to be lodged at the post office of life, or the lightening to do whatever lightening does, I grabbed my umbrella and hat and ran out into the teeming rain.
