A Verreaux's Sifaka a.k.a. the Michael Jackson of the lemur kingdom. Unlike other lemurs, their physiology is such that they only hop and not walk on all fours. Quite comical to watch.
Regards,

Des

A wonderful action capture of the classic dancing/leaping movement of these entertaining Verreaux's Sifakas, Des. Beautifully done!

Pretty funny pose and interesting that they don't walk. Thanks for sharing, Des.
