Caption: Lemur, early 20th-century artwork. This is a lemur known as the aye-aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis). The original caption for the drawing used the older classification of the genus Cheiromys. Lemurs are a group of tree-dwelling primates found only on the island of Madagascar. They were first described systematically by naturalists in the 18th century, with the taxonomy standardised in the 1920s and 1930s. Artwork from the 26th volume (second period of 1900) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
