The Blue-eyed Black Lemur (Eulemur macaco flavifrons), also known as Sclater's Black Lemur, is a subspecies of Black Lemur and, like many other lemurs, is native to evergreen forests and neighboring agricultural land in the northwestern tip of the African island of Madagascar, including the smaller islands of Nosy Be and Nosy Komba. With its strong hands, prehensile tail, and binocular vision, this house cat-sized animal is perfectly adapted for life in the trees. Males are solid black, while females are rusty brown in color. Both males and females have bright blue eyes.
