Ring-tailed lemurs typically live in a large social group of up to 30 individuals. These groups communicate in the wild by raising their tails and vocalizing to ensure they keep together. Spending about 50% of their day on the ground, you can oftentimes find them sun basking. Their bellies absorb the heat from the sun which helps to keep them warm!
Within these groups, males are the most dominant in their clear hierarchy. In fact, they will often meet in stink fight to assert power. Drawing their tails through their scent glands and waving it over their head while staring at each other, they will do this until dominance is declared.
Each ring-tailed lemur has exactly 13 alternating black and white rings on its tail!
