The Golden Bamboo Lemur or Golden Lemur (Hapalemur aureus) is a medium sized bamboo lemur endemic to southeastern Madagascar. It is listed as a critically endangered species due to habitat loss. The population is declining with only about 1000 individuals. As its name indicates this lemur feeds almost exclusively on grasses especially the Giant bamboo or Volohosy (Cathariostachys madagascariensis). The golden bamboo lemur consumes enough cyanide daily to kill a human, but the lemurs' detoxification mechanism is still unknown.

The Golden Bamboo Lemur is crepuscular. It is 37-39.5 cm long plus a tail of 37-41 cm and weighs between 1 and 1.5 kg.

Females gives birth to one infant per year and breed every year. The gestation period is about 138 days.
