October is for Ring-Tailed Lemurs
October is for Ring-Tailed Lemurs

October 03, 2019

For many of us, the new cycle of the year begins with the first day of school. Fall functions as the welcome to the new rhythm of the year; so it’s nice to witness other new beginnings at this time. Typically fall brings with it a reprieve of the summer heat and leaves begin to color red and yellow, so it is nice to see new life spring forward. It's during this early fall that ring-tailed Lemurs welcome their babies to the world. Newborns cling to their mother’s bellies until they are confident enough to climb onto her back, where they will spend the majority of their first few months before observing survival lessons modeled by their mother. Although they breastfeed for 4 to 6 months, they do begin to climb and look for solid food with mama at about 6 weeks. Lemurs live in troops, groups that can be as small as 3 or as large as 27 lemurs, and are ruled by females. When the male offspring mature they will venture off to find a new troop, but females will typically stay with the troop that they were born into.
