We saw this female right beside the path at the end of our hike. It was so close I actually had to step back to be able to take a photo with the zoom lens that was on the camera. It looked at us for a few seconds before scampering off into the evening.
The red-bellied lemur (Eulemur rubriventer) is a medium sized strepsirrhine primate with a luxuriant chestnut brown coat. This lemur is endemic to eastern Madagascan rainforests and is distinguished by patches of white skin below the eyes, giving rise to a "teardrop" effect, particularly conspicuous in the male.
