Red-tailed Sportive Lemur

The red-tailed sportive lemur (Lepilemur ruficaudatus) is, like all lemurs, native to Madagascar. It is a nocturnal species feeding largely on leaves. They also eat some fruit. Individuals weigh around 28.21 ounces (800 grams), and there is little sexual dimorphism. Both members of the pair use the same home range, and there is little overlap between the home ranges of neighboring pairs. Travel distances each night are between 109.36 yards (100 m) and .62 miles (1 km). This is a relatively inactive species. This species can be found in the Madagascar dry deciduous forests.
