Ring-tailed Lemurs get their name from the characteristic black and white bands that run down their tail which is about 60cm long.
They live in groups of up to 30 individuals which are made up of both males and females. Lemur families are led by one dominant female who can be very aggressive to other members of the group. Male members of the group will fight over females during the breeding season and even have “stink fights”. They face each other and then use their tails to spread around smells from their scent glands
