Ring-tailed Lemur, Rare Animal Ring-tailed Lemurs are the national animal of Madagascar and have grayish brown backs and whitish gray stomachs. There are black mark- ings around the eyes and the nose. The most distinctive of their fea- tures, however, is a long bushy tail ringed in black and white, which is the origin of their name. These primates have glands in the wrists which disperse distinctively scented secretions, and adult males rub their tails with their scent and then wave their tails over their heads in order to intimidate opponents during confrontations. Although the they leap between trees when traveling just like other lemurs, the ring-tails often walk on the ground with their tails put up high. They feed on fruit, leaves,flowers, and plants and occasionally eat insects and chameleons.Ring-tailed Lemurs are found in forests and woods near rivers in the southern part of Madagascar Island. The number of Ring- tailed Lemurs has decreased mainly because of habitat loss due to tree cutting, overgrazing by livestock, etc. -7-
