  1. So much curiosity and intelligence in those eyes! Posted 3 years ago
    1. Curiosity...yes. They're very playful and fun to watch. Almost like dogs.

      Intelligence...not as much as you may expect. Lemurs are relatively dumb compared to primates that evolved on the main continent of Africa. I guess they had less pressure to do so. In a way that makes them even cuter :)

The black-and-white ruffed lemur is the more endangered of the two species of ruffed lemurs, both of which are endemic to the island of Madagascar. Despite having a larger range than the red ruffed lemur, it has a much smaller population that is spread out, living in lower population densities and reproductively isolated. It also has less coverage and protection in large national parks than the red ruffed lemur. Three subspecies of black-and-white ruffed lemur have been recognized since the red.. more
