Sifaka Lemurs - The Dancing and Walking Primates

Sir Richard Dawkins' favorite species. Just another demonstration how where an animal lives strongly determines its locomotion capabilities.

Sadly, another twist of evolution, this incredible animal lives only and only in Madagascar, relying on a certain tree there. It's habitat being destroyed by farmers, its hunted for its fur, and as a result there are less than 1000 Silky Sifakas left in the entire Universe. They are one 25 critically engendered primates in the world.

Just another repetition of the same old story.
