THE FAMOUS PROPITHECUS OF TATTERSALL
"Propithecus Tattersalli, in Malagasy "Akomba Malandy" is quite restricted in range, being limited to forest patches in northeastern Madagascar between the Loky River in the north and the Manambato River in the south. Its range is centered on the town of Daraina and covers approximately 245, 000 ha of human-altered degraded grasslands, dry scrub, agricultural land, gallery forests, littoral forests, ans forests fragments. It was first discovered in 1974, when Ian Tattersall sighted groups of animals northof Vohémar. This species is largely diurnal, though sometimes crepuscular during the rainy season, and sleeps at nigth in high emergent trees" (Lemurs of Madagascar, 3rd edition). Local people protect them for attracting visitors."
