'Red Lemur' - photo by Sera.D., via Flickr; Eulemur rufus is a species of lemur from Madagascar with a head and body length of 14 - 19 inches, with an 18 - 22 inch long tail. It weighs about 5 pounds. It has a black face, muzzle and forehead, plus a black line from the muzzle to the forehead, with white eyebrow patches. Males have white or cream colored cheeks and beards, while females have rufous or cream cheeks and beards that are less bushy than males.
The colossal 'Grand Tsingy' landscape in western Madagascar is the world's largest stone forest, where high spiked towers of eroded limestone tower over the greenery. But despite its cold, dangerous appearance, the labyrinth of 300ft stones is home to a number of animal species, including 11 types of lemur.
