Waxy Monkey Leaf Frog (Phyllomedusa sauvagii) (by Joachim S. Müller)
Blue-eyed black lemur (Eulemur flavifrons)
Critically endangered on the IUCN Red List.
Eulemur flavifrons lives in a small area of north-western Madagascar, where it prefers primary tropical forest. It is most active in the morning and evening, although it will also become active at night when nocturnal illumination levels are high. It feeds on a wide variety of foods, including leaves, insects, fruit, and fungi. Groups range in size from 4 to 11 individuals.
Logging, agriculture, and hunting are the main threats to E. flavifrons. It is also sometimes kept as a pet in the area surrounding its range.
Some parts of the range of this species have been protected since 2007, and it is listed under Appendix I of CITES. The Sahamalaza Peninsula where it occurs is also classified as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

I see you all scratching your heads and being like ‘that black lemur is awfully brown’. yes, well, only the males are black. The females are a russet-brown. This is a classic case of a misleading common name.
