  1. Watching your Madagascar set very closely as it sometimes included parks we never visited, despite being there twice. Posted 6 days ago
    1. WEll, you are making me think about going back - but for a huge Madagascar fan like you, you should definitely visit Zombitse, it is, as they say in German: "klein aber fein". Posted 5 days ago
      1. It is quite likely that we will return one day but not soon. Our new discovery, as you know, is Colombia. It has potential for multiple follow-up trips, and that's not something I say easily :) Posted 5 days ago

Verreaux's sifaka , or the white sifaka, is a medium sized primate in one of the lemur families, Indriidae. It lives in Madagascar and can be found in a variety of habitats from rainforest to western Madagascar dry deciduous forests and dry and spiny forests. The fur is thick and silky and generally white with brown on the sides, top of the head, and on the arms. Like all sifakas, it has a long tail that it uses as a balance when leaping from tree to tree. However, its body is so highly adapted.. more
