Ring-tailed Lemurs on the move – Madagascar 2023

Ring-tailed Lemurs on the move.

As the sun was setting on a very hot afternoon in Berenty Private Reserve, Madagascar, a group of Ring-tailed Lemurs came down from a tree and set off across some open ground. The group included a female lemur with a small baby. Their tails are most impressive!

The Ring-tailed Lemur is a true icon of Madagascan (Malagasy) wildlife. They live in large social groups and they the most terrestrial of all the lemurs. They live in a wide variety of extreme environments. They stand about 45 cm tall and have a tail that is an impressive 62cm long.

It is great shame that these iconic animals are threatened by human activity. Their rarity and uniqueness makes them with protecting.
