Born with a balancing pole
In Lemurskoven, the ring-tailed lemur is distinguished by its long black-and-white tail, which it uses like a balancing pole during its impressive leaps in and between the trees. Among ringtailed lemurs, the females make the decisions – even young females rank higher than adult males. The ring-tail lemur often sits in the sun with its arms by its sides, basking in the heat. When they rest, they do so in a large heap, a tangle of striped tails, heads and legs.
