Red-fronted Brown Lemur

(eulemur rufus)
The Red-fronted Brown Lemur is one of the commonest and one of the most widespread lemurs. It is found in primary and secondary rain-forest and dry deciduous forest. Unfortunately, with the deforestation which has occurred in Madagascar, there are now two disjoint populations in the eastern rain-forest and in the western dry deciduous forests. There is considerable regional variation in the appearance of these animals.
It is usually found in troops averaging 8 or 10 in number with several adults and younger animals of varying ages. The troop at Kirindy are well habituated to human presence and regularly hang about at the Swiss Camp area. They are particularly attractive and inquisitive and will often come and inspect you if you encounter them in the forest. A pair followed us, or led us, for several hundred meters down a path in Ranomafana stoping frequently close by to check us out.
