Ring-Tailed lemurs, like all other species of lemur, can only be found on the Island of Madagascar.
They are are diurnal, and spend much of their active time forage for food items such as fruit, leaves, flowers, tree bark and gum. They are very social primates.
Their numbers have declined rapidly in recent years due to large-scale deforestation, habitat fragmentation, and the demands of the pet trade. They are classed as endangered by the IUCN.
