Crowned lemur is one of many species of lemurs living on the island of Madagascar. Their habitat is limited to the northern tip of the island, where they inhabit tropical forests. Crowned lemurs are sexually dichromatic. On this photography, there is an adult female, with mostly gray fur and distinctive V-shaped orange crown above the forehead. By IUCN Red List assessment Crowned lemurs are classified as Vulnerable, threatened by habitat loss due to agriculture, logging, mining, and hunting. The look from this image has a message: please do not let the wilderness of the earth to be destroyed!
