Coquerel's Sifaka

(propithecus coquereli)
The Coquerel's Sifaka is a vertically clinging and leaping lemur with highly distinctive colouration. A most attractive animal, high on the cuteness rating, with white body and tail and deep maroon patches on the thighs and arms extending across chest. It is found in dry deciduous and semi-evergreen forests in the north-west of Madagascar. It is diurnal and is usually found in small groups, most commonly of four or five animals. It can usually be easily found at the Ampijoroa forest station in Ankarafantsika NP where several groups live in close proximity to the camping area and the park office.
These photographs were all taken at Ankarafantsika NP, some along the dry sandy paths in the upper area and the others around the side of the lake.
