IUCN STATUS: Endangered
The most terrestrial of Madagascar’s primates, ring tailed lemurs are easily recognisable because of their long, bushy, black and white ringed tail. Found in south Madagascar these lemurs can tolerate a variety of extreme environments, including some of the hottest, driest and coldest habitats on the island. They are a very social species and in their large groups, females are dominant over males.
