Two ring-tailed lemurs, Mort and Miss Stewart, have achieved internet fame for their adorable predilection for sweets. They live at the Center for Animal Research and Education (CARE) in Bridgeport, Texas, where their owners allow them to suck on lollipops as a special treat (too much sugar would be unhealthy).

CARE is a non-profit sanctuary for over 50 animals, including snow leopards, mountain lions, African lions, tigers, leopards and a coati. The animals all have varying backgrounds, with some having been abused or abandoned, and some having come from zoos who can no longer support them. To adopt or sponsor an animal at CARE, click here.
