Ring-tailed Lemur

About

Lemurs are primates found only on the African island of Madagascar and some tiny neighboring islands. Because of its geographic isolation, Madagascar is home to many amazing animals found nowhere else on Earth. Lemurs may have floated there eons ago on “rafts” of vegetation and evolved in isolation over countless centuries.

Fun Facts
  • Ring-tailed lemurs eat fruits, leaves, and occasionally insects.
  • Although they are sometimes active at night, ring-tailed lemurs are primarily diurnal, meaning they are most active during the day. Lemurs live together in groups of approximately five to 22.
  • Ring-tailed lemurs inhabit highland country and thinly wooded forests that are disappearing because of fires, overgrazing of domestic livestock and logging. Ring-tailed lemurs are also threatened by hunting.
