Starting this month tour guests can walk with the lemurs in parts of Duke Forest at the Duke Lemur Center in Durham. Check out our photo gallery and video from Tuesday's media tour.

The Duke Lemur Center was established in 1966, and today is home to the world's largest collection of lemurs outside of Madagascar. Located on 85 acres next to Duke University, the center houses about 250 animals representing 15 species of rare and endangered lemurs, along with lorises from India and Southeast Asia and bushbabies from Africa.

Check out the photo gallery from today. You can also find more information at http://lemur.duke.edu/.
