Ring-Tailed Lemurs, named after their most distinctive feature, are the most widely-known of the species and are critically endangered residents of Madagascar.

Besides climbing, male lemurs use their tails to send stinky musk scent from their glands at mating-competitors.

Lemurs' food of preference is fruit, but they will eat other forms of vegetation including leaves, bark, and flowers.

The gestation time of the Ring-Tails is about half that of humans', but like us, they give birth to one young at a time.

Like many primates, Ring-Tailed Lemurs are social animals, living in groups which range in size from less than ten to close to thirty.
