This adorable rare baby lemur that is now thriving despite an operation to remove one of her EYES at just two-weeks-old.

The endangered Lake Alaotra gentle lemur was only 10cm (4 inches) long when she injured her left eye, which had to be removed before it became infected.

The unnamed tiny primate was put under general anaesthetic for the delicate procedure last month.
