Appearantly there are about 100 species of lemurs, all endemic to Madagascar. We looked for them several times and succeded to get close enough to take good pictures on 2-3 occations.
The most numerousone is the ringtailed lemur. They live in large groups, but can move fast, so I have a selection of pictures showing only a striped tail (this is not completely true as I have deleted them). They are both on the ground, on boulders and in trees.
The cutest lemur we saw was a specie that lived in and from bamboo.
Here are some pictures of the largest one we saw (don’t ask me about their name).
We (that is the guide) tried to find a nocturnal lemur and he found one small one. The conditions were not ideal, but here is a picture. You can see the big eyes typical for nocturnal animals.
It was great fun to get so close to the lemurs and they are quite photogenic. I am quite happy with the pictures I was able to take, I must have a good camera.
