Jovian the lemur, better known as Zoboomafoo, died Monday at the age of 20.5 at the Duke Lemur Center, where he spent his entire life. His co-hosts on Zoboomafoo, Chris & Martin Kratt had this to say about Jovian:

"He'd jump in through the window and we'd feed him mangoes or garbanzo beans. Sometimes he'd grab our noses with those soft sifaka hands. He was very social and calm. He was young and good-looking and very gentle."

Jovian is survived by his second partner, Pia, a brother Julian, aged 22, 7 children and 4 grandchildren.You can read Jovian's full obituary on Duke Today here.

Is there anything more heart melting than a lemur? How about a lemur discovering the wonders of hanging on a rope for the first time.
