Ring-tailed Lemur

Lemur catta

Ring-tailed lemurs, like all lemurs, are prosimians, which means they are closely related to monkeys and other primates.



Size: Head-body length – 38 - 46cm, Tail length – 56 - 62cm
Weight: 2.3 - 3.5kg



Ring-tailed lemurs are found in the relatively dry forests of southern Madagascar.



Ring-tailed lemurs are mainly vegetarian, preferring fruit but also eating leaves and flowers.



Ring-tailed lemurs are pregnant for around 4 ½ months and although a single infant is most common, twins often occur.



The ring-tailed lemur is threatened in the wild by deforestation due to charcoal production and burning for pasture. It is also hunted for food and the illegal pet trade. Ring-tailed lemurs are part of a successful European Studbook Breeding Programme and the 50th successful birth occurred here in 2010.
