This is a nocturnal species, one of four known fork-marked lemurs occurring in Madagascar. The Pale fork-marked lemur is the most common of the fork-marked lemurs, it is found in fragmented patches of dry forests in the west of Madagascar. <br />
<br />
Fork-marked lemurs are easily recognized by the dual band on their head, which merges into a single band across the back. They are very fast lemurs that are known to run on branches and hop between trees without pause. They largely feed on tree gum and sap, and supplement this diet with the occasional insect.
