[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ring-tailed Lemur
(catta lemur)

It is a large prosimian, a lemur belonging to the family Lemuridae. The Ring-tailed Lemur is the only species within the genus Lemur and, like all other lemurs, is found only on the island of Madagascar.

Although threatened by habitat destruction and therefore listed as vulnerable by the IUCN Red List, the Ring-tailed Lemur is the most populous lemur in zoos worldwide; they reproduce readily in captivity.
