Scientific name: Lemur catta
Of course, a Ringtailed Lemur group has a leader. The most dominant female within the group takes the lead. Together with her young and one or more males, she forms the core group. For example, the core group may eat first and they lead the way on trips through the territory. This is followed by the non-dominant males, the other females and their young.
Ringtailed Lemurs communicate in many ways. They communicate by sounds, smells, body language, facial expressions, as well as by tail posture.
Ringtailed Lemurs move actively during the day. Only at noon does the group take a daily, communal rest. During this, the animals sit on the ground and in trees, with their arms spread toward the sun.
