Verreaux's Sifaka

(propithecus verreauxi)
The Verreaux's Sifaka is a most attractive lemur with its thick soft creamy white fur. It is a vertically clinging leaping lemur with quite a wide range in the dry south and south west of Madagascar. This is the species which is often seen on videos dancing in a sideways motion across open spaces although this is not a natural behaviour it being forced on the animals by deforestation. Infant mortality is high with about 30% of infants being taken by Fossa and Harrier Hawks.
