    1. Thank you, as all are lemurs. Calm, curious, and kind of dumb (compared to other primates) :)

Coquerel's sifaka is a diurnal, medium-sized lemur of the sifaka genus ''Propithecus''. Like all lemurs, it is endemic to Madagascar. It was once considered to be a subspecies of Verreaux's sifaka, but was eventually granted full species level.
