Southern red-fronted brown lemur - juvenile male closeup, Kirindy Reserve, Madagascar A second series of photos from this charming species, featuring a juvenile male and an adult female. The male is easily recognized by its red front, which is black in females. Southern red-fronted brown lemurs live and move in groups. As a tactical photography tip: very often if you find one taking a particular path in the canopy, you can anticipate on the rest of the group following the same route. In our experience this holds true for many lemur species.<br />

  1. You make it really difficult to choose a favorite, Ferdy!

    The facial expression in this photo is so serene and beautiful!

    1. Awww thanks, Lisa :)

      Lemurs in general seem genuinely friendly and curious. This species in particular always has this surprised and slightly worried expression on their face.

  2. Beautiful <3!! And, I love that awesome brown and black lichen on tree next to its head! Posted one month ago
    1. Well, that makes us weirdos in the real world:

      Me: *photographing a lichen*
      Guide: found something!?!?
      Me: yeah, this large lichen with an interesting color
      Guide: silent stare, keeps walking

      Me: *photographing a lichen*
      Ymke: what do you see???
      Me: an interesting lichen
      Ymke: Oh. *Look of disappointment*.
      Me: See, a lichen is an interesting symbiosis of two species, one cannot live withou....hey, where are you going?

      Me: *photographing a lichen*
      Henriette: found someth....
      Me: OK EVERYBODY STOP MAKING ME FEEL WEIRD FOR PHOTOGRAPHING A LICHEN. YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT A LICHEN IS. I DON'T NEED TO JUSTIFY PHOTOGRAPHING A LICHEN.

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
