Blue-eyed black lemur - male, Ivoloina park,Madagascar In captivity, to be released back into the wild. As the name suggests, this species&#039; distinguishing feature is their blue eyes, present in both males and females. A unique feature in primates, the only other species that (sometimes) has blue eyes is us. The male is black with occasional brown highlights, the female is a vibrant orange color.<br />
<br />
Almost all of Madagascar&#039;s 100+ lemur species are endangered or critically endangered. This one is in particular trouble. It&#039;s original natural range is tiny, a small speck in the Northwest of Madagascar. This habitat is almost entirely cleared, and the species is close to extinction in the wild.<br />

The blue-eyed black lemur, also known as the Sclater's lemur, is a species of true lemur. It can attain a body length of 39–45 cm, a tail length of 51–65 cm- a total length of 90–100 cm, and a weight of 1.8-1.9 kg. Being a primate, it has strong hands with palms like a human, which have a rubbery texture to give it a firm grip on branches. Its tail is longer than its body and non-prehensile.
