The ruffed lemurs are the largest and most frugivorous (fruit-eating) members of the Lemuridae family. They are easy to distinguish because they have longer faces than other lemurs, striking coloration, and distinctive, very loud, and highly used calls. We heard these guys nearly every night while staying at the cabin haha. What I admired about these lemurs was just how
We were able to see some red ruffed babies too! These guys were absolutely adorable, and so inquisitive (of course, they may have just been looking for some fruity handouts haha). The triplets were kept with their mom and dad: mom had them parked in a little cubby on the side of the enclosure when we first arrived, but dad apparently wanted to show off his kids. As soon as he came over, the juveniles emerged and started to romp around (see picture below). And just look at those incredible ear tufts and tails! The ruffed lemurs truly appear to be stuffed animals come to life, including their personalities haha.
