One of the largest extant lemurs. The color of their pelage varies geographically, but generally, they are black and brownish with white and red patches. The southern population has more white patches, while the northern population has a darker coat coloration. Their face is hairless and with large fuzzy ears.
They are listed as Critically Endangered, the total population size is 1,000-10,000 individuals, and no indri has ever survived more than one year of captivity. Studies suggest that this is due to their diet being nuanced, meaning that they eat certain foods at certain times of day, which cannot be replicated in captivity.
