White-Footed Sportive Lemur

White-Footed Sportive Lemur, Berenty Reserve, MadagascarGoing through my lemur photos last week, I came across this guy, a white-footed sportive lemur. I never noticed just how thick that black eye liner could be, nor how sweet their faces could be. Sportive lemurs are medium-sized and strictly nocturnal. They spend the majority of their time in trees, but when on the ground, they hop around like kangaroos. This one was spotted in the same place as last week’s ring-tailed lemur that I posted — Berenty Reserve in southern Madagascar.
