Seeing this Species

 

The Bradt Guide 100 Animals to See Before They Die (2007) offers this information:

 

"Finding this species is a serious challenge. The forests along the Bobakindro River in Analamera offer the best chance--particularly in October-November when mango trees are fruiting. Hire a guide from the Ankarana/Analamera park office and be prepared to rough it. Tour operators in Antsiranana can help ogranise your trip." (117)
