This sport takes back ancestral traditions which allowed the Inuits to survive in the big Arctic deserts and represent the link with the nature.

Fast, exciting, well trained sled dog teams are the result of careful behind the scenes planning and hard work. Successful mushers are knowledgeable in such diverse areas as kennel management, canine behavior, nutrition, veterinary care, psychology, physical conditioning, housing and transportation. Wise mushers soon learn that success or failure in any of these areas affects performance dramatically. Considering this fact it is obvious that the welfare of the dogs is of paramount importance.
Team and driver develop a close, trusting relationship because of the amount of time they spend together. To betray that trust by not meeting all of the dog’s needs runs counter to the goal of having a happy, healthy, highly motivated team.

What you see at a race is the result of long hours of work and planning to ensure that the team is prepared to test its abilities against the trail and the competition.

Verreaux’s sifaka with baby - Propithecus verreauxi - dancing on a laterite soil in Berenty Reserve, Southern Madagascar, Tolagnaro District, Anosy region, Madagascar.

Known for the remarkable way it moves, whether making impressive leaps between tree trunks or gracefully bounding across the ground with its arms held high, Verreaux's sifaka has an equally eye-catching appearance.
This spectacular method of locomotion has earned them the nickname "lemur dancer".
The name of the sifaka comes from the sharp, piercing call that this primate makes, which sounds like shi-fahk.
Females give birth to one infant after a gestation period of 130 days, between June and August. For the first 6–8 weeks, the infant clings to the mother's stomach, but for the following 19 weeks, it clings to her back.
This is the only species of Lemur to have hands and feet that are slightly webbed. There are four known subspecies of this particular Lemur.

Although they are protected in some areas, Verreaux’s sifaka are still endangered due to loss of habitat in their native land of Madagascar.

Ring-tailed lemur - Lemur catta - sunbathing in Berenty Reserve, Southern Madagascar, Tolagnaro District, Anosy region, Madagascar.

The Ring-tailed lemur is the most recognized lemur due to its long, fourteen black and white ringed tail.

One of the more interesting habits of ring-tailed lemurs is their love for sunbathing. The ring-tailed mob will gather in open areas of the forest and sit in what some call a yoga position facing the sun. They sit with their bellies toward the sun and their arms and legs stretched out to the sides. This position maximizes the exposure of the less densely covered underside to the sun. The temperature in the forest can be cold at night and this is a way to warm up before they forage.

Although they are protected in some areas, ring-tailed lemurs are still endangered due to loss of habitat in their native land of Madagascar.
