Ring-tailed Lemur

(lemur catta)
The Ring-tailed Lemur is the iconic symbol of Madagascar, the species that the general public identify as being a lemur. Despite this it is rather untypical of Madagascar's lemurs as it is largely terrestial, lives in large social groups and tolerates a variety of more extreme habitats than any other lemur.
It is a medium sized lemur, the body being about the size of a large domestic cat, with a very long banded tail and is instantly recognisable. It is found in the south of the island in spiny forest, dry scrub, deciduous and gallery forest as well as rocky escarpments and at higher elevations in subalpine vegetation. At Isalo NP we could see Ring-tailed Lemurs sunning themselves in the early morning on top of high rocky cliffs.
