The Maryland Zoo's new baby lemur is awfully cute. If you can find him, that is.

Do you see what we see? No?

How about now?

That little fella (or gal, the gender has not been determined yet) poking out from his mother's belly is a newborn sifaka, a kind of lemur. He was born on March 22 to mom Anastasia.

Look at those little googly eyes! That face that so clearly says, "Adore me, but at a safe distance!" We're in love! Oh, and since these first two pictures were taken, the little guy has decided he's ready for his close-up. Here he is in all his Disney-ready glory.

Now overheard all over the Zoo: Parents explaining to their disappointed children: "No, you can't have one."
