Figure 11. Nightly path length (NPL) in meters for focal animals over an entire year. One NPL per animal per night was available. Average NPL is statistically not different between individuals. However, sportive lemurs show a conspicuous peak towards the beginning of the rainy season in November-December.

thus not to a monogamous and a solitary species but either to gregarious versus dispersed pair-living species, or species living in uniform versus variable pairs. Interestingly, detailed analyses of the feeding behavior showed conformity in feeding hypotheses with predictions derived from a monogamous versus solitary comparative approach (Thalmann, 2001).

Activity. Both species were definitely nocturnal despite the fact that Avahi was sometimes seen feeding during the day in the rainy season (Rasmussen, 1999; Thalmann, personal observation) when leaf cover was very dense (Figure 2e). During this season, protection against potential aerial predators of woolly lemurs such as Henst's Goshawks (Karpanty, 2003) might be almost as good as during the night. During the dry season, when leaf cover was weak Avahi was never seen
