Lemurs smell of fruit from 50 feet away, research says
The Florida-based Lemur Foundation said after an experiment that they had hidden melons in a box that Lemur had found, but only if the wind was blowing towards them with the smell of fruit. ۔
In the spirit of the experiment, Elena Cunningham, a professor of molecular pathobiology, says that for the first time, research has shown that primates can smell specific odors from afar, although this feature is found in many animals. No previous research was done.
Lemurs, which have striped tails, live in dense forests and eat a variety of fruits and leaves. In dense forests they cannot see far and that is why they have a sense of smell. An interesting experiment has been done to further confirm this.
