I Can’t Help it, I have a Weak Bladder! by 

The Red Ruffed Lemur (Varecia rubra) is one of the largest primates of Madagascar with a body length of 53 cm, a tail length of 60 cm and a weight of 3.5–4 kg. The IUCN Red List considers the red ruffed lemur to be endangered, listing habitat loss, hunting, and the pet trade as primary threats.

The exact status of the red ruffed lemur in the wild is not fully known, but recent studies show that they are endangered with a declining wild population. At present, there are over 200 ruffed lemurs in 42 different zoos worldwide. Several of these zoos work with each other in breeding and caring for the captive population. To prevent inbreeding, wild caught animals have been introduced to the captive breeding program.
