6 King Julien lemur brothers you’d want to see while in Madagascar
If you have kids (or even if you don’t), chances are that you’ve seen the Madagascar  cartoon, and the last one, Madagascar, escape to africa . Like many of us (I do), we find King julien character as cute and funny. This post will open our eyes to the fact that sometimes reality (actual lemurs) can be more interesting than fiction (what is described in the cartoon).Although there are 57 diffferent types of lemurs in Madagascar, Madafan has handpicked some that may invite you to come and see by yourself by visiting this beautiful island.
So here we go for some King Julien brother and sisterhood in real life.A must-see list of cute lemurs to discover.
|The actual King Julien-alike lemur. The Lemur Catta is probably the
most famous lemur known abroad of Madagascar for its ring-tail and his
karate-like way of jumping. Watch them play and jump in the “Reserve of Berenty”, in the south of MadagascarOnce you are there, try to walk/jump the Lemur Catta way
|Look at these cutie lemurs with this awesome fur.It always amazes me,
even though I live in Madagascar, that such animal with such fur live
in a tropical country like Madagascar.Guess what this red lemur is trying to pick downside?
|Dare you say you won’t surrender to
this eye. Don’t you?If you are a photographer, I guess you’ll love the
color combination that nature has put into this lemur. But hey,
there’s more to discover in the actual island.Well, this shot is almost a close-up but it’s also interesting to see them move around. Guess what? Comme and see by yourself
|How do your toy-bear compare with this actual lemur? Ain’t it cute?Yet
another variation of cute lemurs you’ll meet during your trip to
Madagascar.Would you be able to get steady on this bamboo and take such
a nice standing for the photographer?
|What about a black and white couple?As if they are just waiting for a photograph to frame them.|
|Imagine meeting with this cutie round lemur in the deep and dry south
of Madagascar – unrealistic situation that you’ll meet all along your
trip. Have you noticed that those lemurs definitely love cameras, as if
they were models ready for a photo session.
If you want the scientific approach, rather that the more than cutie-oriented one I adopted here, you’d want to check the very detailed book edited by Conservation International titled “Lemurs of Madagascar”. Note that this CI book also provide clear map of where to spot what kind of lemur in Madagascar.
