Sifaka springt zich in veiligheid

Verreaux’ Sifaka are known as the dancing sifakas as they jump sideways over the ground. Here in Zombitse, where these lemurs have been hunted for ages, they flee at the mere sound of humans. I had only spotted a group of Sifaka’s for a moment when an alarm call went through the trees and they started jumping from tree to tree. With sheer luck I managed to get this picture of a sifaka in mid air.
