Models, Hyenas, Lemurs Oh My!
|Charlie the lemur sits on Banana Republican's shoulder while his master Dwon Simmons plays with his tail.|
Simmons says ring-tailed Charlie hails from Madagascar. He adopted the lemur from a friend who runs an animal refuge in Homestead. "He had a hernia when I got him," Simmons explains. "He is part of the pro-simian family."
Simmons has a permit from the Florida Wildlife & Game Commission that allows him to keep Charlie inside his apartment. "He has his own room," Simmons adds. "People are always stopping me on the street to meet Charlie."
