As seen here: http://melancholy-melody13.deviantart.com/art/Terror-s-vore-time-107721864

A part-lemur humanoid race, listed in the wiki but no description as of yet. I've wanted to write about this race since their inclusion, so let's work out the article, okay?

Now there's all sorts of lemurs, but the most kickass are the Coquerel's Sifaka. You know, like Zaboomafoo (talking lemur puppet on kid's animal show, ah the memories)

Some infos: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coquerel%27s_Sifaka

Don't need to be completely based off of this single species, of course, but their traits would fit nicely as a racial basis.

--
Humanoids with rounded ears on top of their heads, long fur-covered tails, powerful, lanky legs, and feet that are closer to a hand, used in climbing. Often have dense fur on their bodies in varying amounts; coloration too varies greatly between populations. No fur grows on their faces, and they have large, brightly-colored and reflective eyes, which can be seen in the dark, earning them the name 'forest ghosts'.

Entirely arboreal, lemurians are fluid in their movement through the forest canopy, moving more swiftly than a neko. They can jump incredible distances between trees or branches, using their legs as shock absorbers and holding fast with their prehensile feet before pushing off again. A predator unfamiliar with them can find them a very tricky meal to catch. If a lemurian finds themself on the ground, however, they must leap sideways for locomotion, making shorter jumps than usual, at a speed slower than a human could run.

Lemurians are a strictly herbivorous race, feeding on just about any edible plant matter and fruits available to them. Their tribes reside on and inside of trees, their favorites being prickly varieties that predators would have difficulty dealing with, of which lemurians have no problem traversing.

I have an idea based on the fossa, the predator of lemurs that you saw in the video, which I would elaborate upon once the info for lemurians is worked out.
