The greater dwarf lemur is an arboreal quadruped, and is not a very agile leaper (Fleagle, ). SOCIAL BEHAVIOR: The Greater Dwarf Lemur is a solitary species which is also nocturnal. VOCAL COMMUNICATION: squeak: This call is high in pitch and plaintive sounding and is emitted with the mouth closed (Petter and Charles-Dominique, ). This. 10 Weird And Wonderful Creatures From Madagascar. nocturnal primates are well-adapted to life in the trees, their opposable big toes and tails longer than their bodies allowing them to hang from branches. More remarkably, aye-ayes are the only primates that use echolocation to find their prey; they use their long middle fingers to tap on.

Geographic Range. Hairy-eared dwarf lemurs, Allocebus trichotis, are unquestionably among the rarest of surviving lemurs, and presumably have never existed in high numbers. Allocebus trichotis had not been seen in over 20 years when, in March , it was rediscovered in the vicinity of the Mananara River in northeastern Madagascar, which is its exclusive habitat. Daubentonia madagascariensis Due to its bizarre appearance and unusual feeding habits, the aye-aye is considered by many to be the strangest primate in the world. It is the world’s largest nocturnal primate. Unusual physical characteristics include incisors that are continually growing (unique among primates), extremely large ears, and a middle finger which is skeletal in appearance, [ ].
