Description: Madagascar , Coquerels sifaka ( Propithecus verreauxi coquereli ) in a tree . Coquerels sifaka is a subspecies of Verreauxs sifaka . This lemur lives in the rainforests of Madagascar , feeding on fruits , flowers , bark and leaves . Its long tail helps it to balance when leaping from tree to tree . Coquerels sifaka lives in small groups of between 5 and 10 individuals . The sifaka is named for its distinctive " shi fak " alarm call , which is used to warn members of the group when predators are near . Destruction of the forests of Madagascar means that Coquerels lemur is becoming increasingly rare .
