Mort was the only male in the original group of lemurs that arrived at CARE. Since females are dominant in Lemur troops, Mort is (literally) the low man on the totem pole. He doesn't mind though. He has a very cool and calm demeanor and has no problem letting the ladies take the lead. He also has proved himself to be a great baby-sitter! When all of the females in the troop had their babies, Mort served as nanny and playmate. The babies seemed drawn to Mort and would often be found climbing all over him.
