Bristol Zoo welcomes "Christian Grey" - the 50 Shades lemur
BRISTOL Zoo is hoping its very own "Mr Grey" will be a hit with the ladies as they introduce the critically endangered lemur to their females.
The zoo recently welcomed the lemur, named Christian Grey after the fictional character in the best-selling book Fifty Shades Of Grey.
Mr Grey – pictured – has already won the hearts of the female members of staff at the zoo and they hope he will be just as popular with a new female lemur who will join him later this month from a zoo in France.
The handsome grey Alaotran gentle lemur arrived from Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, which manages a breeding programme for the lemurs.

At four years old, Mr Grey is the perfect age for breeding, a zoo spokeswoman said.
Lynsey Bugg, assistant curator of mammals, said: "Our current pair of lemurs are now too old for breeding and so to continue with the programme we have taken on a second, younger pair in the hope that they will continue our success."
