“I need a man that loves monkeys”, says Kristie Alley as she talks about her 14 ring-tailed lemurs. Although Alley says her lemurs are totally safe and friendly, she does not recommend them as pets. For one, lemurs are known to live around 30 years. That leads to a huge responsibility that many owners may not be able to take on.
