^BIndri^b (^IIndri indri^i). This is the largest of the lemurs, its body reaching 90 centimetres in length. It lives in the rainforests of north- eastern Madagascar, feeding on fruits, leaves and flowers. The indri lives in small groups of between 3 and 5 individuals. Its loud call, which can be heard from over a mile away, is used to advertise the presence of the group to other lemurs. The destruction of the indri's habitat has led to a rapid decline in its population numbers. Photographed in the Analamazaotra or Perinet Special Reserve, Madagascar.

'Robin and Richard were two pretty men' - Victorian nursery rhyme illustration
It's ten in the morning and two men have overslept, to the horror of one of them, although the other one appears unconcerned.
“Robin and Richard - Were two pretty men - They lay in bed - Till the clock struck ten. - Then up starts Robin - And looks at the sky, - Oh brother Richard - The sun's very high!”
From “Nursery Rhymes - Ridicula Rediviva” illustrated by J.E. Rogers, with chromolith printing by R. Clay Sons & Taylor and published in London in 1876 by Macmillan and Co.
