Coquerel's sifaka video

By Zoo Blog Keeper

Did you know?..... the Sacramento Zoo is one of only 4 AZA accredited zoos to exhibit Coquerel's sifakas. Like many other types of sifaka, the Coquerel's sifaka is in danger of extinction in Madagascar.

A fun fact: With their powerful hind legs, sifakas can propel themselves more than 30 feet in a single jump! Come out and see our two sifakas on your next visit. Learn more about sifakas!

  1. On my most recent visit, I met a young boy who stood near the Sifaka's exhibit for about half an hour to watch them. He learned about lemurs from Zoboomafoo!
