Plastic Coquerel's Sifaka Lemur

Looks a little like he's walking the high-wire, doesn't he?

Our Coquerel's Sifaka Lemur

This engaging-looking plastic coquerel's sifaka replica is made of solid plastic and stands supported by its tail. It is 2 1/2 inches tall. The brown colored and white fur is well described and the head comes with distinctive eyes. Our coquerel's sifaka lemur miniature has a concerned expression but promises not to bite. This lemur replica makes an interesting pet or gift and fits nicely into a shoebox diorama for a school project. Check out our other lemur toys and gifts.

About Coquerel's Sifaka Lemurs

The Coquerel's sifaka lemur (Propithecus coquereli) is a well-known species of lemur in Madagascar. The coquerel's sifaka is a large lemur about 20 inches from head to rump and carries a 16 to 20 inch tail. It is arboreal and lives in the dry coastal forests of Madagascar. It moves from tree to tree not by swing its short arms, but by leaping with its large powerful legs.Sifakas are plant-eaters. Leaves are their favorite food, and make up most of their diet in the dry season (along with tree bark). In the wet season these primates also eat fruits and flowers. They find much of their food in the treetops, but also occasionally search for food on the ground. When eating, sifakas rarely use their hands to handle their meal. Instead, they usually grab the food directly with their mouth.
