A COUPLE transformed their home into a climbing frame for two new pets – and people are shocked when they see the furry friends.
In videos posted on TikTok by creator, @misscloberthelemur, followers were given a glimpse into what life is like living with the unusual animals.
The married couple upload clips of their two adopted lemurs, Clover and Neeco.
One room is dedicated to the furry friends, with wooden beams installed across the roof, a large net hanging from them, and plenty of climbing ropes.
“Clover & Neeco’s Room turned out great! When it warms up we will add windows that open to create an indoor/outdoor space for them”, one video was captioned.
Another video showed the happy lemurs chasing each other around on the new net.
The TikTok creator said: “Added a net and they love it. They bounce around in it all day long.”
The rest of the house has also been modified to accommodate the cute animals.
The living room is fitted with ropes stretching the length of the ceiling and several items Clover and Neeco can swing from.
“I love to watch these two play. They are now best buddies”, wrote the TikTok creator.
The agile creatures can be seen springing all over the house, across furniture, the TV, even scaling walls to reach upstairs balconies.
People were amazed to see the wild animals being kept as pets.
“Wow, I didn’t know what to expect when I saw ‘lemur’ room but Iam glad I saw this lol”, commented one viewer.
“A wallpaper mural of a rain forest or mountains or even Egypt would look cool”, suggested another.
Others wrote: “Lemurs are freaking amazing”, “that’s awesome”, “well now I need a lemur”.
However there were people who disagreed with the couple’s choice of pet.
“Sorry but they’re not pets,” commented one disappointed TikToker.
Another said: “Please leave wild animals in the wild. This is mean.”
But the creator hit back, replying: “Mean is the people we rescued her from who had her in a really small cage and was left there with no attention or space to run around.”
In the UK there are a surprising amount of exotic animals which can be kept as pets.
They include Sugar Gliders, Capybara, Marmoset Monkey, Octopus, African Pygamy Hedgehog, Fennecc Fox, Mexican Walking Fish, and Giant African Land Snail.
