The selfie craze has seen everyone from Barack Obama to Miley Cyrus posing up for pictures and now a ring-tailed lemur has decided to get in on the action.

Bekily, a 12-year-old male lemur living at London Zoo, grabbed the camera from keeper Tegan McPhail during feeding time and made sure the focus was all on him.

Ms McPhail said: "We're always taking quick pics of the animals we look after, as with workmates this cute it's hard to resist.

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

"I doubt we'll be entering his pics into photography competitions any time soon; however I think he did a pretty good job!"
