Sifakas are among the biggest, best-known, and most engaging of the island’s lemurs. Seeing all nine species is something of an accomplishment for lemur-watchers, as the species are scattered all around the island, and some of them are very rare and local. Although all species are similar in diet and behaviour, the sifakas in the eastern rainforest tend to live at lower densities, in smaller groups with larger home ranges.
DISTRIBUTION: Dry forest in the central part of western Madagascar.
ID: A large white sifaka with a black face.
VOICE: Explosive “see-fak” similar to Verreaux’s Sifaka.
BEHAVIOUR: Similar to Verreaux’s Sifaka.
WHERE TO SEE: Easy to see at Tsingy de Bemaraha NP. Also common and tame in the remote Beanka Forest, north of Bemaraha..
