The red front (forehead/sideburns) is not the most prominent feature of the Red-fronted Lemur; the bold black central line on its face is the more dominant, extending over the muzzle.
Also called the Red-fronted Brown Lemur, it is native to two distinct ranges of southern Madagascar, one on the west and one on the east side.
