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.

There are regional eBay sites for Europe (Italy, Germany, others...), maybe those would have cheaper shipping. Shipping between North America and Europe right now is horrendous!
Quote from: Isidro on January 05, 2020, 05:48:50 PMComparing with the staple it looks like a decent size for me, tough I should know the exact measurements for assure that. However the seams are enough for discarding this figure for my collection.I'm a bit stranged that you find it too small since you scale variation acceptance is much wider than mine. I think that the Safari monkey toob sifaka would fit well with your Japanese macaque. But you also have a golden lion tamarin of the size of a mandrill...The Yowies silky sifaka also looks like it could have a very good size for my tastes at least, tough one never can be sure until seeing directly the figure.
