S I F A K A 🌿 ____________________ Meet Von der Decken’s sifaka! Sifakas are very cool. They’re a genus of lemurs, and like all other lemurs found only on Madagascar. Their tails are as long as their bodies. They leap from tree to tree, but the most incredible behavior is their on-the-ground movement: they skip! Or, as a zoologist would say: “bipedal sideways hopping movements of the hind legs.” This is a very young one, although its mother wasn’t far away. I took this photo in Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park, where I also took that photo of the woman walking down a dusty road and of the sun setting behind jagged rock formations. A very interesting place to visit! 🇲🇬 . . . . . . #madagascar #lemur #tsingy #tsingydebemaraha #the8thcontinent #sifaka #primateparty #lifethroughalens @my_madagascar @everydaymadagascar
