Red-bellied Lemur - feeding 5, Ranomafana, Madagascar We found this Red-bellied Lemur on our morning hike as it was making a lot of noise straight above us in the canopy. They are loud and sloppy eaters. Taking loud cracks at the nuts and constantly dropping the leftovers. In one of the shots you can see such a drop.<br />

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.

The species, first identified in the year 1850, exhibits diurnal behaviour and marked sexual dichromism. The red-bellied lemur has been studied extensively since the mid-1980s,.. more
