The Common Brown Lemur was completed on 4.20.2012. I hadn't drawn a lemur for about a year, and to be honest I wasn't considering drawing another one soon. But when I started putting together a collection of my lemur drawings for a collage of the species, I realized the five I'd drawn really weren't quite enough. So I decided to add one more, and chose the Common Brown Lemur. The drawing is based on a photo by Jason Brown.
The Common Brown Lemur is a prosimian native to the forests of central northern Madagascar. This primate grown to be about 15 to 20 inches long, with tail that's longer than it's body - usually about 18 to 23 1/2 inchs. It weighs 4 1/2 to 8 3/4 pounds. While they prefer large, tropical old growth forest, they adapt well to any type of forest. They are herbivores and do not eat meat. Instead they feed on fruits, bark, sap, leaves and even flowers. The lemur breeds only once a year, usually in June and July, and one only offspring is produced. While not endangered, the Common Brown Lemur is categorized as "Near Threatened" by the International Union of Conservation. Their numbers are in decline, mostly due to habitat loss.
