The Ring Tailed Lemur (lemur catta)

The ring-tailed lemur is highly social, living in groups of up to 30 individuals. It is also female dominant, a trait common among lemurs. To keep warm and reaffirm social bonds, groups will huddle together. The ring-tailed lemur will also sunbathe, sitting upright facing its underside, with its thinner white fur towards the sun. Like other lemurs, this species relies strongly on its sense of smell and marks its territory with scent glands. The males perform a unique scent marking behavior called spur marking and will participate in stink fights by impregnating their tail with their scent and wafting it at opponents.

A thing of real beeauty Ron.

Saw an intersting fact on these.. Lemur means something like "spirits of the dead " in either Latin or Portugese..named by the Portugese exploreres who thought the eyes in the dark in the forest were the spirits of their fellow explorers.

ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS!!

When I looked at this picture I wondered, have I ever seen a lemur not chewing on a twig? I don't think so.
His eyes are really stunning, and the whole image is very close to perfection.
