Default Schleich lemur

What's that, you say? No such thing?
Well, you're absolutely right. Which is why I had to make my own.


Little Ida here is my slightly sloppy attempt at a ringtailed lemur, using a meerkat body. In addition to the ears and tail I gave her a higher forehead and wider cheeks. She's far from perfect, I probably got all sorts of things wrong without noticing - this isn't a type of animal I know very well - so if anyone sees anything, please let me know!

Was that sit-standing one a meerkat to begin with? The one in the center, on a base. If so, which company made it? I'm unfamiliar and I think I need one for my collection

The youngster's from the Schleich baby meerkat set, so eventually I suppose I'll have to do something with the other three as well.
I had to make the base after I removed the original tail - turns out that was what was keeping him upright.

Isn't the walking one without the base originally a lemur? If so, its a safari LTD 'Monkeys and apes' toob animl.

Holy cow, you fooled me. I didn't recognize it at all and I own quite a few of those figures. You did a wonderful job modifying it into a Lemur!
