Famous for their lengthy tails, the ring-tailed lemur is a primate found exclusively on the island of Madagascar. Like other lemur species, the ring-tailed lemur is female dominant, meaning that their social groups are controlled by a hierarchy of females.
Scientific Name: Lemur catta
Characteristics: Despite its size, the ring-tailed lemur’s tail is not prehensile, meaning it can’t hold or grasp objects, and is instead used primarily for balance and communication. Learn tons of other amazing facts with our hand painted and scientifically accurate ring-tailed lemur figurine!
