Lemur: The lemur is a primate with a long, bushy, black and white ringed tail. It has a dog-like snout, nose, and lips, its eyelids are dark, and its furred ears are white. The Lemur’s thick fur is grayish-brown on the back, and grey on the limbs and rump.
Its underside has a mixture of white, grey, and cream colors, according to ARKive Initiative (AI). The lemur’s face is white, and the eyes are surrounded by dark patches, and the upper part of the forelimbs have grayish-white fur, while the paws and feet are dark. It weighs 5 to 5.7 pounds.
Ringed-tailed lemurs live in groups of about 20 in which females are dominant (power passes from an alpha female to her daughter) and social hierarchies are carefully observed.
They Also have a strict breeding season, so all young are born around the same time. Within their first six weeks, baby lemurs start to socialize with others from their “playgroup,” and chase each other, play-bite, and wrestle, as they learn about social relationships.
SCIENTIFIC CLASSIFICATION OF LEMUR.
|SIDE A||SIDE B|
Lemurs share resemblance with other primates, but evolved independently from monkeys and apes. Due to Madagascar’s highly seasonal climate, lemur evolution has produced a level of species diversity rivaling that of any other primate group.
Until shortly after humans arrived on the island around 2,000 years ago, there were lemurs as large as a male gorilla.
Also, Most species have been discovered or promoted to full species status since the 1990s; however, lemur taxonomic classification is controversial and depends on which species concept is used.
