Meet the Ring-Tailed Lemur
The Ring-Tailed Lemur is named for the 13 alternating black and white bands on their tails. They typically have white bellies, and white faces with dark triangular eye patches and a black nose.
About the Ring-Tailed Lemur
Unlike other lemurs, the Ring-Tailed Lemur spends 40% of their time on the ground, moving quadrupedally along the forest floor. When they travel throughout their home range, they keep their tails raised in the air like flags, to keep the members of their group together. Within their groups, females are dominant, meaning they have preferential access to food and choice of mate.
