The Black and White Ruffed Lemur is the largest species of Lemur and comes from a few pockets of forest on the east side of Madagascar. It is critically endangered.
It is one of only two primates to build a nest in trees, the other being its close relative the Red Ruffed Lemur.
Like other lemurs, they live in social groups and, like humans, they like to sunbathe.
There are three subspecies: the nominal subspecies shown on this page, the Northern or White-belted Ruffed Lemur (see link below) and the Southern Black and White Ruffed.
