Say cheese! Lemur takes a selfie at London Zoo
Bekily the ring-tailed lemur snatched the camera from his keeper to capture the shots
In the bid to win the prize for the most original selfie we’ve had the belfie (read: Kim Kardashian’s bottom), the welfie (that oh-so-smug post-gym shot), the drelfie (a selfie taken while drunk) and now… the lemur selfie.
That’s right: Bekily, a 12-year-old male ring-tailed lemur, has been getting in on the on-going craze by posing for candid snaps at ZSL London Zoo.
Grabbing the camera from keeper Tegan McPhail during feeding time, the mischievous lemur decided to give Ellen DeGeneres a run for her money.
Keeper Tegan said: “We’re always taking quick pictures of the animals we look after - as with workmates this cute, it’s hard to resist - but Bekily definitely wanted to get in on the action himself this time.
“As I was snapping away, he grabbed the camera lens and pulled it towards his own face. It took him a few attempts but he got a great profile picture in the end.

“I doubt we’ll be entering his pictures into photography competitions anytime soon; however I think he did a pretty good job!”
