‘Anything Ellen can do, I can do better’ seems to be the approach taken by one of ZSL London Zoo’s playful ring-tail lemurs, who was caught snapping his own ‘selfies’ just a few days after the Oscars’ host now-infamous pic took Twitter by storm.
Bekily, a 12-year-old male ring tail lemur, grabbed the camera from keeper Tegan McPhail during feeding time and made sure the focus was all on him.
Keeper Tegan said: “We’re always taking quick pics 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 pic in the end.
“I doubt we’ll be entering his pics into photography competitions anytime soon; however I think he did a pretty good job!”
