The Indri (Indri indri), also called the Entrina, is a large (up to 70 cm long, and weighing up to 13 kg) tree-dwelling relative of the lemur native to Madagascar. It has only a rudimentary tail, and large eyes. The long silky coat, except on the bare black face and snout, is particolored. Gestation is 5 months, with the single young usually born in May or June. The Fossa and birds of prey are the Indri's main predators.
The word "indri" is Malagasy for "Look!". French naturalist Pierre Sonnerat heard a Malagasy point at the animal and took the word to be the animal's name. The Malagasy name for the animal is Babakoto.
