  1. 1. Lemurs Marcus
  2. 2. About the Author • My name is Marcus I like skateboarding, video games and playing the drums. I’m writing about lemurs because I think they are interesting and funny looking. I think this project will be a fun experience.
  3. 3. Who am I? • The lemur is a primate . That means they are related to apes and humans! The lemur has a body length of an average of 20 inches and the tail by itself is another 20 inches long!
  4. 4. The Early Years • Some species of lemurs have litters of two or more young. Other species such as the ring tailed lemur only have one baby at a time. When a baby is born it latches on to its mom’s belly. It feeds on its mother’s milk. At about 3 weeks of age the baby starts riding piggyback. When the lemur is three months old, the mother sends it out to get its own food!
  5. 5. Habitat Sweet Habitat • Lemurs live in hot forests and live in trees. Although their homes are being destroyed and being made into resorts and hotels.
  6. 6. What’s on the Menu? • A lemur’s diet consists of bugs , plants, fruits and small animals. To get food they use their claws and nails. They find their food on the jungle floor and in trees.
  7. 7. Making Tracks • Most lemurs are arboreal but the ring tailed lemur spends most of its time on the ground. The lemur’s fingers and toes all end in nails which helps them grasp on to trees and small objects. The second toe of the hind foot of most of the species has a long claw that the lemur uses to comb itself.
  8. 8. Simply Irresistible! • At least 14 species of lemurs are extinct and about 30 species remain but several are on the endangered list.Lemurs communicate vocally and through sent markings.
  9. 9. Where in the World? • The only place you can find lemurs in their natural habitat is in Madagascar.The lemur’s habitat is being destroyed and their homes are being demolished.
  10. 10. Did You Know? • Did you know almost all lemurs live up to 18 years. They also have very keen hearing and a good sense of smell. Lemurs also have opposable thumbs.
