We just learned about the Aye-aye.

Another type of primate is the Indri, also called the babakoto.

This is another kind of lemur that lives in Madagascar.
These primates are one of the largest lemurs in the world, and grow to be about 20 pounds, and 4 feet long, and they have black and white fur.

Groups of indri will sometimes talk back and forth to each other by singing loud songs that can be up to 3 minutes long.
Sometimes there is roaring or high or low singing from one group, and the other group will answer with songs of their own.
