Leaping Sifaka

A Verreaux's Sifaka leaping from one tree branch to another. In the late afternoon the sifakas make their way from the spiny forest where they feed, to the protection of the tall large trees in the gallery forest. These agile lemurs are very adept at jumping from tree to tree in the tall canopy.
