The Coquerel's sifaka (Propithecus coquereli) is a diurnal, medium-sized lemur of the sifaka genus Propithecus. It is native to Madagascar. The Coquerel's sifaka was once considered to be a subspecies of the Verreaux's sifaka, but was eventually granted full species level. These animals live in matriarchal groups of about three to ten individuals. Groups engage in auditory, visual and olfactory communication. Coquerel's sifakas rely on a mainly herbivorous diet. In the wild, they are knoen to have a lifespan of 27 to 30 years.

Coquerel's sikafas have been the subject of many studies that may provide insight on the evolutionary history of primates, specifically that of humans. They have also been the subject of various research efforts, including those investigating the evolution of color vision, female dominated society, evolution of paternal care, and causes of speciation.
