  • The indri is the largest of all surviving lemurs and is best known for its eerie, yet beautiful song which can carry for more than 1.2 miles (2 km).
  • The indri is active during the day, feeding on canopy fruits and leaves
  • The indri will bark when confronted with danger and make kissing sounds when affectionate
  • Despite its large size, the Indri refuses to move along the ground, and will negotiate gaps by leaping, often over 33 feet (10 m) between tree trunks.
  • Naturally rare due to its low birth rate (one birth every three years) and small population density, today the Indri's numbers are small and dwindling due to habitat loss.
  • The Indri does not do well in captivity or tolerate habitat disturbance; traits that are major setbacks for possible rehabilitation projects and conservation. Web links for Indri indri indri :
