Lemurs of Kianjavato

4 Comments

A few images of four of the Lemur species  I regularly encountered whilst in Kianjavato that I never got round to posting. Looking forward to getting some images of the Milne-Edwards Sifaka and Golden Bamboo Lemurs in Ranomafana NP although this might be more of a challenge as finding them could be a bit more difficult.

Enjoy!
