An imature indri (Indri indri) in eastern Madagascar

An imature indri (Indri indri) in eastern Madagascar. The Indri are Madagscar's largest lemur, standing about a metre high, with a barely visible tail. Looking more like a panda than a lemur, they propel themselves through the air with their immensely powerful back legs. Indris communicate with each other with a piercing, high-pitched wailing sound. They have three calls: one for communication, one for danger and one for courtship or mating. They live in groups of between three and five. Each group ranges over 32 hectares of forest, eating no less than 40 different types of leaves and foliage a day. No indris have ever survived in captivity. Lemurs belong to a group of primates called the prosimians, meaning before monkeys'. Everywhere in the world except Madagascar, monkeys replaced them 35 million years ago. Madagascar has outstanding biodiversity; most of its flora and fauna is unique to the island and can be found nowhere else
