Lemurs can only be found in the south-western part of Madagascar. They lead an arboreal lifestyle, in contrast to their cousin Lemur Katta which lives in forestless places, often on rocky uplands. The ground-dwelling Katta hides in caves and rocky outcrops. It is adept at moving about on the ground, jumping well, and can walk on its hind legs. It often lives in groups of 5 to 20 individuals.
Lemurs are very eager to eat fruits such as bananas, figs but they also eat insects. They often eat leaves, shoots, roots of different plants, but also lizards and birds' eggs.
Pregnancy lasts about 4,5 month and female after this time gives birth usually to 1 or 2 cubs, but less often to 3. Cubs immediately after birth attach to the mother's fur on her belly and after about 2 weeks move to the back where they usually stay until the first month is over. After this time the young, apart from its mother's milk, starts to take food on its own like the adults. After 6 months the young leaves the mother and becomes independent. Lemurs live up to 25 years.
