slender, long-limbed primate found in the forests of Madagascar. The largest of the lemurs, it is 60-70 cm (24-28 inches) long, with a rudimentary tail and large hands and feet. The round head has a pointed face and round, furry ears. Its fur is black, with white on the head, throat, forearms, and buttocks; the relative proportions of white and black vary geographically.
