Lemurs Navigate the Grand Tsingy

Clip: Episode 1 | 3m 47s | Video has closed captioning.

The Grand Tsingy is home to over 500 square miles of sharp, limestone pinnacles, towering over 400 feet. The area’s deep ravines hold moisture and create pockets of fresh vegetation sought after by the Decken’s sifaka. With thick, rubbery soles and the ability to jump up to 30 feet, this species of lemur is able to cross the miles of exposed rock to feed themselves and their young.
