<figure class="photo"><a href="https://www.jungledragon.com/image/87831/indri_baby_-_3_palmarium_madagascar.html" title="Indri Baby - 3, Palmarium, Madagascar"><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.jungledragon.com/images/2/87831_thumb.jpg?AWSAccessKeyId=05GMT0V3GWVNE7GGM1R2&Expires=1663804810&Signature=G3YzsY3Rh%2BdWkdeCcXdiaLD31yg%3D" width="200" height="188" alt="Indri Baby - 3, Palmarium, Madagascar Not only were we surprised to find an Indri at Palmarium Reserve, we were even more thrilled to discover she has a young baby.<br />
<br />
In these photos, you can see the baby clinging on to the mother&#039;s belly, and peeking outwards from her side. It will typically be in this position for 4-5 months, after which it moves to the mother&#039;s back. That makes this Indri baby at most 5 months old.<br />
<br />
It is very likely much younger as usually they are born in May or June, whilst this was taken on July 22. That puts it at about 2 months old, at the most. Given its small size and still being fully black, my guestimate is 4-6 weeks old.<br />

  1. She's so beautiful <3 Posted 2 years ago
    1. Yes she is! And despite closeups, it's still hard to bring across the experience of being in their presence. They're so weird, gentle, pure and innocent. Completely void of any type of violence or competition. Staring in their eyes feels like an alien experience. Posted 2 years ago
      1. I would love to experience it! Just from your photos, I can sense the surreal and gentle atmosphere. Posted 2 years ago

The indri, also called the babakoto, is one of the largest living lemurs. It is a diurnal tree-dweller related to the sifakas and, like all lemuroids, it is native to Madagascar.
