5.4 Indris and sifakas

Both indris and sifakas are unusual amongst lemurs in that they are active largely by day. Leaves are their primary food. They have a specialised form of locomotion, best described as 'vertical clinging and leaping' and the leaps they can take, using their powerful legs, can be up to 10 m.
