As the adult male in his group, 7 year old Rupert is low sifaka on the totem pole, and he must do his best to steer clear of the wrath of dominant female Gisela, especially when it comes to attempting to share tasty treats. Usually, when Rupert tries to grab for something delectable anywhere near Gisela he gets chased or nipped: she simply is not interested in sharing. However in this particular instance, some branches of maple flowers were brought in, and Rupert carefully snuck to the ground undetected by Gisela. Then, standing bipedally and stretching his full length as he reached upwards, he was able to just barely grab hold of a maple branch: success!
