Ring-Tailed Lemurs

Lemur catta

About the Ring-Tailed Lemurs

This lemur’s scientific name means “ghost cat”, and with their enormous eyes and long stripy tails, you can imagine why! Their tails usually have 13 rings, and help spot each other through long grass.

Habitat and Distribution

Ring-tailed lemurs are found only in the scrubby forests of south-west Madagascar, where they live in groups of between 5 and 25, led by several dominant females.

Family Information

They have one or two babies at a time. Young babies cling to their mothers’ stomach, then after a few weeks ride on her back.
