Bekily, a 12-year-old ring-tailed lemur, snaps a selfie at the London Zoo.

Selfies are all the rage right now, and apparently this lemur at the London Zoo has caught onto the trend.

A 12-year-old ring-tailed lemur named Bekily whipped a camera out of the hands of his keeper, Tegan McPhail, during feeding time recently and turned it on himself.

McPhail explained that the keepers often have a camera on hand to capture the primates’ most adorable moments. “With workmates this cute, it’s hard to resist,” the keeper said.

“As I was snapping away, he grabbed the camera lens and pulled it toward his own face,” McPhail said. “It took him a few attempts, but he got a great profile pic in the end.”
