Wildlife in Serengeti-Park

White-fronted lemur | Eulemur albifrons

The white-fronted lemur is a primate species from the group of lemurs. They have brown or gray fur, and the males are recognizable by their white head. White-fronted lemurs live together in groups of 5 to 15 animals. These animals do not have a pronounced day-night rhythm, so their calls are heard anytime at dawn, dusk and at night. The babies cling to their mother’s coat for the first five months of their lives, later riding on their backs. According to the World Conservation Union, they are an endangered species!

Serengeti-Park animals: White-fronted lemur

After about five months, the babies are weaned, and are sexually mature after about one and a half years. White-fronted lemurs can live up to 25 years old, and in the care of man even longer. They are rainforest inhabitants who can climb and jump wonderfully. Their long tail helps them balance. However, this cannot be used for grasping. On the ground they move almost exclusively on all fours. These animals are generally active during the day and can also be nocturnal, but moonlight nights are more effective than dark nights.
