Oh, Madgascar, oh lemurs. Here is another, the magnificent Verreaux’s sifaka, who performs the most powerful of leaps through the air and the most comical of leaps on the ground. Theo drew one, too, and his shows their incredible speed, but all in all, we’ll let Attenborough do the talking for us. Please watch the video below Theo’s drawing. It’s amazing!

  1. Jennifer and Theo’s drawings do show different aspects of this crazy lemur. Nice work, you too! And thanks, Jennifer, for showing me this video. It really is terrific!

  2. Boy, Theo, that is one fast lemur! Great drawing!

  3. Thanks for the drawings and video. Very interesting. Theo did a great job of showing a lemur in motion. Keep up the good work, you guys!
