The Lemurs Of Ankarafantsika

Continuing on from yesterday’s post where we met the birds that hang out in Ankarafantsika’s car park, we will now meet the lemurs.  Although you will also see them while hiking in the actual park, these photos were all taken in the car park.  My husband was a bit surprised by how close they came.

Coquerel’s Sifaka – my personal favourite!

In the evening we also saw a few of the shy nocturnal species.  Unfortunately I couldn’t get any decent photos as it was dark and they were far away enough so that a flash wouldn’t have helped and would have frightened them off.  We saw Dwarf Lemurs, Golden-brown Mouse Lemurs, and Grey Mouse Lemurs.
