"Leave Nothing but Footprints, Take Nothing But Pictures"

Born and raised on Long Island; presently based out of South Carolina LAURA SALZHAUER is a recent graduate with a B.A. in Environmental Studies and self taught photographer.

My major subject is wildlife photography, however I love taking pictures of just about anything. I hope my pictures inspire others to appreciate the biodiversity on Earth and support conservation.

Indri-indri, Andasibe-Mantadia National Park, Madagascar.

Last of the Indri (and some of my favorite shots) and last trip as a group in Madagascar. These days are truly missed.

Indri indri - Andasibe- Mantadia National Park, Madagascar.

I can not get over this species. I love them. This is the second to last post of them, and second to last post on my entire Madagascar adventure.

Indri Indri- Andasibe-Mantadia National Park, Madagascar

I know these are not the clearest of all photos, but I’m putting them up because of the cool movement the Indri has; this one is also carrying a baby, imagine if humans were like these primates?

Now, you can not see them in this video they just hopped off to the right. But make sure you listen. This is one of the most brilliant sounds my ears have ever heard.

Call of the Indri.

Last but certainly not least, probably my favorite species of lemur; the Indri is the largest extant lemur. They do not possess a tail like most if not all other lemurs. They have the most magnificant call (I will post video soon).

These pictures were taken from my “bungalo” house at the park. This was also 3 hours after we arrived!!! I never scrambled for my camera so fast! It was such an amazing sight, especially with the baby!! So cute, look at that weird little thing! The babies are about the size of other lemurs (maybe Eulemur rufifrons).

One of the most amazing days of my life!
