Ruffed neck lemur

Varecia variegata


Black and white ruffed lemurs are one of the biggest types of lemurs. This one was spotted in a private reserve. Obviously, it was quite used to visitors and did not mind posing at all.

Yes, East End! Most of the animals (other than yummy zebu), are protected in Madagascar :)

Great series! It's comforting to know their habitat is protected.

Thanks, Patty and Gerardo. Lemurs are lovley to watch. Thankfully, the Malagassy government was wise enough to protect so many areas as national parks some 60 years ago, safeguarding the environment for so many of the animals that are endemic to Madagascar
