Greater bamboo lemurs can be found in bamboo forests in the eastern rainforests of Madagascar. Their range, however, is severely fragmented, and the species is highly endangered (Wright et al., 2008). Here an adult female and her baby take an afternoon rest among the strands of bamboo in the Kianjavato Classified Forest, Madagascar.
