Golden-Crowned Sifaka (Propithecus tattersalli)

I took this photo in 2004 in one of the few remaining patches of forest where these sifaka live, near Daraina in Madagascar. Since then, with the deteriorating political situation in Madagascar, things have got worse for the lemurs [link]

Listed as Endangered on the IUCN Red List [link]

Sifacas are my favourite primates. Very intriguing portrait.
