The Silky sifaka (Propithecus candidus) is a large lemur native to Madagascar. This beautiful lemur is one of the world's rarest mammals with only several hundred left in the wild. The species is threatened by habitat destruction. Recently, however, educational programs in Madagascar show hope for better protection of this vulnerable species.(Source: digdaga, via beverleyshiller)
Rain didn't stop play for this cheeky black-and-white-ruffed lemur at Dudley Zoological Gardens. The primate grabbed an umbrella from a visitor to the site's Lemur Wood - home to more than 30 free-roaming lemurs - and set off for a wander around the one-acre paddock.
Red ruffed lemur (Varecia rubra) are found in rainforests of the Atsinanana, Madagascar
