While the majority of lemurs are diurnal, there are several species that are nocturnal. The mouse and dwarf lemurs are among the smallest and the most abundant of the island’s primates, although they are likely to be hibernating during our adventure.

What are some behaviors for lemurs?

One of the next things we wondered was, do lemurs live alone?

Some nocturnal lemur species, like the Milne-Edwards’ sportive lemur, shelter in groups during the day but travel alone to find food at night. Indris, the largest lemur species, live their entire life as a pair : just one male and one female.

In Madagascar, pet lemurs are usually snatched from the wild as young, a process that often involves the killing of the mother.

That pet lemurs tend to have serious nutritional problems from being fed inappropriate diets exacerbates the problem of limited access to qualified veterinary care. Unfortunately this can lead to privately-held pet lemurs developing a host of illnesses, including obesity and diabetes, and dying prematurely.

How do lemurs mate with each other?

The males engage in stink-fights to woo a female by spreading a stinky scent from scent glands on their wrist onto their tail, and flinging the stink at each other using their tails.

Meerkats and Lemurs are the same animal. There is no difference between the two animals except when seen from different angles. I made this discovery at Berlin Zoo where I saw some Meerkats in a small holding area. As I was passing them by I fell and landed on the ground, this is when I discovered the horrendous truth: the Meerkats had change.
