Blue-eyed Black Lemur

Eulemur flavifrons

Blue-eyed black lemurs, also known as Sclater’s lemurs, are the only non-human primates to have blue eyes!



Size: Head-body length – 39 - 45cm, Tail length – 51 - 65cm
Weight: 2 - 2.5kg



Blue-eyed black lemurs are found in the dry forests and citrus plantations of western Madagascar.



These lemurs eat mainly ripe fruit, leaves, flowers and, occasionally invertebrates.



Females are pregnant for around 4½ months and usually one infant is born. The infants are born dark in colour, the females develop their brown colouring at around 6 months.



Blue-eyed black lemurs are critically endangered in the wild due to habitat loss through ‘slash and burn’ agriculture and logging. They are also hunted, by humans, for meat or fur and trapped for the pet trade. The Zoological Society of East Anglia is actively involved in blue-eyed black lemur conservation through AEECL (The Lemur Conservation Association). This project has helped create a reserve for these lemurs in Madagascar and also set up research and education programmes. Find out more at
