The sifaka lemurs are one of the larger varieties of lemurs. They have a black face that contrasts greatly with their fluffy white fur. The adults that I saw have a brown patch of fur that extends from the top of the head back to the neck. The sifaka lemurs move easily in the treetops. When they venture onto the ground, you'll find them either sitting in a crouched position or moving in a dance-like motion, skipping sideways on their hind legs.
