Transcript of RIng-tailed Lemurs

What Ring-tailed lemurs look like Where Ring-tailed lemurs live and information about their habitats. What do Ring-tailed lemurs do
during the day and during the night?
Are these animals carnivores, herbivores,
omnivors, or scavengers?

About the Ring-tailed lemur's family and why their young may not survive. The reason why this animal is endangered. Some organizations that have been set up to help Ring-tailed lemurs survive Ring-tailed lemurs are very pretty. They have a long black and white striped tail and their faces are white with a litte gray. Also their bodies are gray and their eyes are yellow. Ring-tailed lemurs have bushy fur that is very soft. These animals walk on four legs and they are very social and are hardly ever independent. Ring-tailed lemurs are 17.75 inches tall and weight 7 to 7.75 pounds. Ring-tailed lemurs have an odor on their bodies so they can defend themselves from any danger. Ring-tailed lemurs live in the Deciduous Forest in the African islands of Madagascar. In this biome it is warm in the summer and cold in the winter. Also sometimes it can be cold in the morning. There are many trees and other insects that live there. The Deciduous Forest is where most people live because of the climate. Ring-tailed lemurs' niche in this habitat is to eat the little insects off the trees that may harm the tree. What these lemurs do during the day is eat the bugs off the trees, drink water, sleep, and they love to climb trees. The lemur eats and drinks at night too but it mostly sleeps like us. The Ring-tailed lemur is a herbivor. The reason is that they eat fruits, berries,and insects. They could be carnivores because they eat bird eggs and small mammals. The Ring-tailed lemur becomes sexually mature at the age of three years old. They can produce mainly one young at a time but sometimes they may produce two or three. The gestation period is 135 days. Their young may not survive because they may be attacked by hawks, eagles, foosas, Nile crocodiles, and snakes. The reason why ring-tailed lemurs are endangered is because they are losing their habitats. People should be concerned because ring-tailed lemurs get the bad stuff off the trees so the trees will stay healthy. If the trees stay alive then there will be some oxygen that we can breathe. To help with this problem then you need to start making an organization. The main organizations that have been set up to help these cute animals are the National Zoos. The expectancy of the life in the wild is up to 18 years. When they are put in captivity they live up to 20-27 years. So if you take them into captivity then they will be more that may survive. The effort of putting these animals in zoos has been very successful; now the number of Ring- tailed lemurs has incresed very greatly.
