Here’s a quote from Wikipedia about lemurs. The use of the term “benefactor” and the mention of babies is a bit creepy.
“In Malagasy culture lemurs, and animals in general, have souls (ambiroa) which can get revenge if mocked while alive or if killed in a cruel fashion. Because of this, lemurs, like many other elements of daily life, have been a source of taboos, known locally as fady, which can be based around stories with four basic principles. A village or region may believe that a certain type of lemur may be the ancestor of the clan. They may also believe that a lemur’s spirit may get revenge. Alternatively, the animal may appear as a benefactor. Lemurs are also thought to impart their qualities, good or bad, onto human babies. In general, fady extend beyond a sense of the forbidden, but can include events that bring bad luck.”
There was also a general comment at the beginning of the article that some of the Malagasy people believed lemurs are the souls of their ancestors. No where in the very long article does it mention that lemurs are found in Nepal. This is interesting since August said that he does not lie. Was he really in Nepal or did he lie? What is significant about Nepal?
