Description
Description

The Ring-Tailed Lemur (Lemur catta) is a small primate native to Madagascar, like all lemurs. It is identifiable by the long, distinct black-and-white striped tails they are named after, and also has round yellow eyes and short furry ears. Unlike most other lemurs, they spend much of their time on the ground, searching for food like fruit and flowers, before returning to the trees. They live in the sparse, dry, hot forests of southwestern Madagascar. They are the most researched and most recognizable lemurs, in large part thanks to the fact that they are the most common primates in zoos.
