These lemurs spend more time on the ground than other lemurs and hold their tails up in the air as they walk to keep track of their troop. Troops can be composed of up to 25 members and are led by a dominant female. Ring-tailed lemurs are highly social animals and help raise the offspring of other members of their troop.
