The Ring-tailed Lemur is a noisy mammal that lives in Madagascar, a large island off the southeast coast of Africa. The ring-tailed lemur spends most of the time on the ground but it is a good tree-climber (other lemurs spend most of their time in trees).

Lemurs live in troops (groups of lemurs) in many environments, including: rain forests, scrub (areas with low trees and shrubs), and rocky areas.

The scientific name of the Ring-tailed Lemur is Lemur catta (Genus species). Lemurs are primates, mammals closely related to monkeys, apes, and people.

Anatomy: The Ring-tailed Lemur has large eyes, a long snout, and a long, ringed tail. This lemur's body is 16 inches (40 cm) long plus a tail that is 2 feet (60 cm) long. It weighs about 6 - 8 pounds (3-3.5 kg).

Diet: Ring-tailed Lemurs eat fruit, leaves, flowers, insects, and tree gum.
