Transcript of RING TAILED LEMURS.
` What do ring-tailed lemurs eat? What preys on ring-tailed lemurs? What space do ring-tailed lemurs need? Why do ring-tailed lemurs need this much of space? Where do ring tailed lemurs live? What kind of climate to ring-tailed lemurs live in? What adaptations do ring-tailed lemurs have to make to survive in this climate? Ring-tailed lemurs are omnivores. They're typical diet includes leaves, various fruits, tree bark, and flowers. They also eat insects and spiders as their meat diet. Not very much information is available on this species in the predation branch because they are endangered, but likely predators include humans, dogs, raptors, and fossas. In lush forests, groups of ring-tailed lemurs have been observed to use about 6-9 hectares for living space. In less lush forests with less food, they use about 23 hectares. Ring tailed lemurs live in Madagascar and some of the neighboring islands of Madagascar. They prefer to live in gallery, subalpine, deciduous forests and Euphobia bush habitats. Ring-tailed lemurs use this space mainly for food. They are considered to be less territorial than other lemur species and tend to live in dense groups, so that is really the only reason they need space. Ring-tailed lemurs live in areas that recieve very little rain per year. Average temperatures in southern Madagascar are 30 degrees C in January and 24 degrees C in July. Southern Madagascar is also subject to periodic droughts. To adapt, ring-tailed lemurs have to eat a huge variety of different animals and plants. For example, they eat spider webs, insect cocoons, and even dirt from termite mounds. What type of shelter do ring-tailed lemurs need? Ring-tailed lemurs usually live in trees. They sleep in trees and ocassionally go down to get food or sunbathe. Do ring-tailed lemurs live solitarily or in groups? Lemurs always live in groups. In any group, females are always dominant. Whatever group females are born into, they stay in. Once males reach maturity, they leave their birth group and join another one to keep the gene pools diverse. Lemurs usually do many of their daily tasks in groups, such as sunbathing and searching for food. What did you observe about ring-tailed lemurs at the zoo? At the zoo, the ring-tailed lemurs were cuddled together and didn't seem to be doing much.
