Family - Lemuridae


Lemuraide or known as lemurs are strepsirrhine primates native to the island of Madegascar. Lemurs are 32 to 56 cm long including their tail's. What's intresting though is that their hind legs are slightly longer than their forelegs. Another thing about lemurs is that they are herbivorous. Some lemurs diets like the ring-tailed lemurs consists of insects,leaves,and fruit. Another thing is that instead of claws they have nails. Most lemurs are known to leap like for example the bamboo lemur.
