Crowned Lemur

Crowned Lemur

Crowned lemurs, like all lemurs, are primates only found on the island of Madagascar, off the southeastern coast of Africa. Out of all lemur species, crowned lemurs are the most sexually dimorphic, meaning males and females look very different. They are an endangered species, threatened by habitat loss and are hunted for food and the pet trade.
