Red-bellied lemur 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.

  1. What a beauty, how fortunate to have been in that position! Another nice addition to your lemur list :) Posted 7 years ago
  2. Thanks - this site has got me inspired to relook at and edit photos from the trip to Madagascar that I had never got around to editing - It has been great reliving the memories, and trying to find species new for this site. Unfortunately I think this is the last 'new' lemur species I have to offer up, unless I start saving for a return trip.... Posted 7 years ago
    1. Thank you for the kind words, that is exactly the purpose of the site. By the way, not everything you can contribute has to be a new species, photos of known species to the site are very welcome as well. Posted 7 years ago
  3. Curious, What lens did you use (I see you were at 120mm). Please share about flash setting used. On camera or external flash?

    Great shot!!

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.
