Ring-tailed Lemur (Baby) eye’s point of focus.
Most lemurs are listed as endangered or threatened species. Many species have gone extinct in the last centuries, mainly due to habitat destruction (deforestation) and hunting.
Conservation of lemurs in Madagascar is a high priority, but the country’s poor economic situation and the lemurs’ limited range make it an uphill battle.
There are 85 living lemur species accounted for in current publications,with more documentation currently awaiting publication.
The Ring-tailed Lemur (Lemur catta) is a large Strepsirhine primate and the most recognized lemur due to its long, black and white ringed tail.
Like all lemurs it is endemic to the island of Madagascar.
It inhabits gallery forests to spiny scrub in the southern regions of the island. It is omnivorous and the most terrestrial of lemurs. The animal is diurnal, being active exclusively in daylight hours.
