Those beautiful chestnut eyes tell a sad story… The Alaotran Gentle Lemur is found only in the papyrus and reed beds of Lac Alaotra, the largest lake in Madagascar. It is a critically endangered species. Widespread hunting for pelts and cheap meat combined with large scale burning of the reed beds on which it depends, and capture for the illegal pet trade, has caused a decline of over 50% in a decade. Also known as the Alaotran Bamboo Lemur or Bandro, these primates spend their time climbing throughout reed beds, hardly ever touching dry land. They live in groups of 2-9 animals, and defend their territories using calls and scent marking. They have one or two babies after a five-month pregnancy, and mothers carry around their babies on their backs. British naturalist Gerald Durrell described this lemur as a ‘honey-coloured teddy bear’. This example is captive bred to help ensure the species does not go extinct.
