Crowned Lemur

I haven’t had the watercolors out for awhile, and this little guy caught my eye.

Lemurs are found only on Madagascar.  All lemur species are endangered due to shrinking and fragmented habitat.  They are also poached, even from reserves, for food, and kept as pets.  Seventeen species of lemur are already extinct.

The ring-tailed lemur was featured in a previous endangered species post.
