Eastern Lesser Bamboo Lemur

Hapalemur griseus

Description:

The eastern lesser bamboo lemur (Hapalemur griseus), also known as the gray bamboo lemur and the gray gentle lemur, is a small lemur endemic to Madagascar, with three known subspecies. As its name suggests, the eastern lesser bamboo lemur feeds mainly on bamboo. The lemurs of the genus Hapalemur have more manual dexterity and hand–eye coordination than most lemurs. They are vertical climbers and jump from stalk to stalk in thick bamboo forests. The eastern lesser bamboo lemur is gray in colour, sometimes with a red patch on its head. It averages 284 mm in length with a tail of 36.6 mm. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_le...)

Spotted at Andasibe-Mantadia National Park.
