This is a short video I wrote, shot, and edited in one weekend after I finished my volunteer time at a wonderful nature and wildlife rehabilitation center. The purpose of this film is to promote the nature center, and describe some of the activities Sweetbriar Nature Center engages in.

This is a quick collection of some of my wildlife shots. It will be part of my Fauna in Focus DVDs, a collection of many different animal behavior studies, the first of which will be be a collection of animal shots from my time in Madagascar. Possible future projects will include a American Wildlife version.

A short video of rare lemur behavior I shot in Ranomafana National Park in 2009. The lemur above is Eulemur rubriventer, (red-bellied lemurs). This behavior has also been observed in red-ruffed lemurs and black lemurs. It is believed that the lemurs anoint themselves with a cyanide-like substance secreted by the millipedes in an effort to rid themselves of ectoparasites. This video was filmed just after an aggressive encounter with a different lemur species.

The Wildlife Identification section of the DVD features over 100 different species from Madagascar.
This activity has been used by Madagascar National Parks service to train prospective park guides in Ranomafana National Park.
