  1. Lovely capture. Quite unusual not to have the patch of white on its neck and to have such dark eyes, beautiful!
    I am tempted to suggest that this is a collared brown (Eulemur collaris), where exactly did you see it Wendy? Of course I am not suggesting you are incorrect, just need to satisfy myself!

    1. No problem, glad you mention it. Now I see it too.
      I guess you're right. I'm going to to have another search.

      1. It took some time (5 years), but I finally figured out. This is a hybrid of the Crowned Lemur and the Black Lemur:

  2. Absolutely stunning capture! We did not see this species in Madagascar, glad you did! Posted 5 years ago
    1. Thanks, still have to figure out which species it is.
      The red ruffed lemur is not right.

      1. Are you sure? If I do a Google image search on the location (Palmarium Reserve), I see a lot of photos of what looks to be the same species, all identified as the red ruffed lemur. Posted 5 years ago
        1. I see what you mean, but I'm still confused.
          This one is missing the white spot on its neck.
          And he has a brown tail instead of the black one...
