About Me

Scientific Name Lemur catta

Description

The Ring-tailed lemur is one of twenty-two species of lemurs. They share a common ancestry with Africa’s monkeys and apes, but were isolated from those species probably 50 million years ago when Madagascar separated from the African continent. All lemur species today are endangered due to the rapid destruction of their forest habitat for agricultural development, cattle grazing, and human settlement.

Fun Facts

  • Ring-tailed lemurs purr and mew like house cats. It loves to sunbathe with legs and arms spread wide.
  • They communicate with short grunting sounds as a contact call within the troop, sometimes followed with a quick bark.
