Verreaux's sifaka (Furuta - ChocoEgg Series 6)
« on: January 11, 2018, 01:45:02 PM »
Walk-around of the Verreaux's sifaka, sometimes listed as a langur monkey, by Furuta. Give us a twirl!

I'm pretty sure that this figure is a Verreaux's Sifaka (Propithecus verreauxi).

I have seen it identified as that as well (http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~CH2M-NITU/eggj6be.htm)

Thanks, I'm not sure what is the official name is then. I'll update the thread title.

Several times I have been misled by erroneous IDs from sellers on eBay. The langur (Old World monkey) is only distantly related to the sifaka (a lemur). I would write the official title as Verreaux's sifaka and delete the mention of a langur.
