A short video depicting interesting interactions of a reb-bellied lemur family group when their infant nearly falls from the trees. Many lemur babies die as a result of falls, and it is quite interesting to see how the parents react to the close call.
This odd behavior was observed in January 2010 by Daniel and Rachel Jacobs while conducting a study on the red-bellied lemur (Eulemur rubriventor). Here you can see the male anointing himself with the cyanide-like chemical produced by millipedes.This video was the first time this behavior was clearly captured on film with this species in the wild.
