From late August, after a 4 months gestation, females give birth to their little hairy balls: 1 maki baby in general, or two. It’s very touching.
The females move from tree to tree with their young baby hung under the lower belly to protect them. The baby’s hands firmly tighten the mother’s fur and the tail embraces her lower abdomen.
