A lemur fossil is emerging this summer at the University of Nebraska State Museum’s new Visible Lab. The lemur — named “Kirby” — is a 50 million-year-old fossil recovered from the Bridger Basin in southwestern Wyoming. Kirby represents the first fossil primate skeleton for the University of Nebraska State Museum collections.
