Description: Golden-crowned sifakas (Propithecus tattersalli) weigh, on average, 3kg (6.6lbs) and grow to lengths of about 48cm (19in). They have tufted ears, a black face, white trimming of fur around the face, and orange-gold fur on the top of their head and below their chin. Golden-crowned sifakas' arms are nearly the same lengths as their legs, making them well-suited to a life in the treetops, where they are adept at leaping and grasping on to branches (Source: Rayner).

Golden-crowned sifakas are a type of lemur. They are diurnal (they are active during the day and sleep at night) and arboreal (they spend most of their time in trees). The golden-crowned sifaka is the smallest ofФото three species of sifakas. The other species include Coquerel's sifaka (Propithecus verreauxi coquereli) and diademed sifaka (Propithecus diadema diadema) (Source: 'Golden').
