Endemic to the island of Madagascar and highly recognised for its long, black and white ringed tail. Despite being the most popular lemur in zoos worldwide, it is classed as an endangered species.
Found in western and eastern parts of Madagascar in dry lowland forests. They are identified for their grey coat and a black line from the muzzle to the forehead, with white eyebrow patches.
One of the world’s most endangered primates and the largest bamboo lemur. It feeds almost exclusively on a bamboo species containing cynadine. A typical daily dose would be enough to kill humans.
Named for the unique call they send echoing through Madagascar’s forests. These tree-dwelling primates remain upright throughout, leaping from tree to tree by jumping with their powerful hind legs.
Is the more endangered of the two species of ruffed lemurs, both of which are endemic to the island of Madagascar. Has a complex social structure and is known for its loud, raucous calls.
