The Ring-tailed Lemur

Ring-tailed Lemurs live in the dry forests of South-West Madagascar. They are easily recognisable thanks to their grey fur, white face and black and white ringed tail. They are the most land-dwelling of lemurs. They spend almost 40% of their time on the ground and live in groups of 5 - 20 individuals.
