The Red Ruffed Lemur was completed on 1.25.2009. It is the third color drawing of a lemur I've completed and the fourth over overall of a lemur species - the other being a Sifaka Lemur that I have yet not added the digital tinting to. The drawing is based on a photo by Derek Davis.
The Red Ruffed Lemur is one of two species in the genus Varecia, which are the ruffed lemurs. The other being the Black-and-white Ruffed Lemur. As with all other lemurs, Varecia rubra is native to Madagascar. It lives in the rainforests of Masola which is in the northeast corner of the island. The Red Ruffed Lemur is the largest of the true lemurs with a head/body length of 20-24 inches with a tail of roughly 22-25 inches. They weigh between 7-10 pounds. The females are slightly larger than males. The Red Ruffed Lemur is highly endangered and may be as few as less than 1,000 in the wild.
