    1. Yes, they are really great :)
      It really amazed me that they were so curious and not afraid!

      1. The theory goes that this is because Madagascar wildlife has evolved in isolation where they did not evolve a natural fear of people. Posted 5 years ago
        1. I hope it will never change.
          It's so great to see :)

The red-fronted lemur, also known as the red-fronted brown lemur or southern red-fronted brown lemur, is a species of lemur from Madagascar. Until 2001, it was considered a subspecies of the common brown lemur, ''E. fulvus''. In 2001, ''E. fulvus'' was split into several separate species, including ''Eulemur rufus'', in which this species was included. In 2008, ''E. rufus'' was split into two species, the red lemur and the red-fronted lemur . ''E. rufus'' covers the population on the west coast.. more
