The Red-bellied Lemur (Eulemur rubriventer) is a medium sized prosimian with a luxuriant chestnut brown coat. This lemur is endemic to eastern Madagascan rainforests and is distinguished by patches of white skin below the eyes, giving rise to a “teardrop” effect, particularly conspicuous in the male.3

The species, first identified in the year 1850, exhibits diurnal behaviour and marked sexual dichromism. The Red-bellied Lemur has been studied extensively since the mid 1980s, primarily in Ranomafana National Park.45 This lemur species is designated as vulnerable according to the IUCN Red List, due to threats endangering habitats from slash-and-burn agriculture in Madagascar.
