My Bio

Website | Zoo Photography Instagram | Cat lovers' Instagram | Facebook | WildlifeReferencePhotos


Hello! We are two sisters from the Netherlands, and together, we go by Mouselemur or Mouselemur Photographer online.

As animal lovers and nature enthousiasts, we spend a lot of our free time either visiting zoos around the country or taking a walk in nature.

"May I use your photos as a reference?"

In using our photos as a reference, you have two options.

  • For high resolution versions of our best work, visit our profile on wildlifereferencephotos.

  • For reduced quality but a larger choice and more variety, get inspired by our DeviantArt gallery.

Since the quality of the work we share on DeviantArt has been reduced (to make it less appealing to steal them) we do not charge you if you want to use them as a reference. They are free to use.

However, there are a few conditions:

  • You ask permission before you use our photos as reference.

  • You create new, original work; this is not a license to freely distribute our photography elsewhere.

  • You do not use our photography to create art that is in any way offensive.

  • If you share your art online, you give credit for our reference photo through a mention (on DeviantArt) a tag (Instagram) or link.

*Permission once given, is granted for all future projects; you don't have to ask permisson to use every specific photo.

If you're a professional artist looking to sell your creations based off of one of our photos as a reference, you do not need to purchase a commercial license.

We truly enjoy seeing the results, and collect all art created by DeviantArt artists who have used our photos as a reference, in a favorites folder as a way to say thank you.

Want to know more? Read our FAQ.

Deviousness Award

Mouselemur is an influential force within the DeviantArt Community. These two dynamic sisters have been vivaciously supporting their fellow artists for years through their tireless work in several groups such as TandemFeatures, NaturesHaven and AnimalsPlantsNature. You'll also find them behind a plethora of features, highlighting up and coming artists around the site. Avid animal lovers, they post lovely wildlife photos that describe their zoo adventures and provide in-depth background on the species they showcase. Because of their undeniable dedication to the DeviantArt community we are thrilled to be awarding Deviousness for January 2019 to Mouselemur.
Awarded Jan 2019
Proud announcement: Our profile - including our first batch of photos - is now officially live at :party: You'll find some of our best photos here in high quality for those of you who are professional tradtional and digital artists :D We'll continue adding new photos, so be sure to keep an eye out. If there's a certain photo of ours you want to see over there in high quality, let us know and we'll see what we can do. *Since we purposefully reduce the quality of our photos on DeviantArt, these remain free to use for reference. But please keep in mind that being a (zoo) photographer may be a hobby, it does cost us money. So yes, for the extra-edited, high quality photos you'll find on we do ask a small fee. We hope you understand.

Hi everyone :wave: A quick sign of life from us, other than us spamming you with our photos ^^; We are stlll working from home here in the Netherlands but enjoying our free time in the weekends and visiting zoos again at last :love: The good news is, with zoos being closed and us spamming with you with photos over the pandemic, we have *almost* worked through our photo backlog that stems from not submittingmuch through 2015/2016 :faint: That means all new photos (posted less frequently), very soon :la: What to expect? Keep your eyes peeled for (at least) Silver Fox kits and Bat-Eared Fox kits, Jungle Kittens and a young Jaguar, and many Ducklings :heart:

LISTEN TO THE SONG So you know That I was never gonna be the one That I was never gonna see you in the sun The blue eyes are showing me your love So I wait And write you letters I won't send I'll make up this whole love in my head And I should get some rest So I slept By the ocean seeping in the sun Love, I will never run away Blue eyes are calling me back home She had oceans in her head Stars in her eyes Sun drenched Soft skin Sand in her toes And I know She's never coming home And she had oceans in her head Stars in her eyes Sun drenched Soft skin Sand in her toes And I know She's never coming home And see I'll wait here in the sun I'll wait here for your love I called your name Out in the rain But I know That I'm howling at the moon And see I'll for you to call I'll wait for you to sooth my soul I'll wait for your love to end this soul But I know There's nothing at all She had oceans in her head Stars in her eyes Sun drenched Soft skin Sand in her
