Collared Brown Lemurs are sociable and live in permanent groups of 3 to 12 individuals but groups as large as 29 have been observed. While most lemurs are female dominant, there isn’t a clear dominance hierarchy in groups of this species. Groups stick close together while foraging and rarely descend from the canopies. When groups encounter each other noisy, hostile encounters may ensue. They are active during the day and night but are most active at dawn and dusk.
