The Ring-Tailed was part of a series of 3 line art drawings of lemurs I drew in 2003. The digital tinting was added in 2007. I also illustrated a Sifaka Lemur and a Black and White Ruffed Lemur. But I haven't yet added the digital tinting to the Sifaka. This drawing was made from a photo, but I also did some sketching and observing of lemurs in the excellent enclosure in the San Francisco Zoo - which allows you to feed the lemurs remotely.
Ring-Tailed Lemurs inhabit southern and southwestern Madagascar, with an additional population on the southeastern plateau of the Andringita Mountains. Lemurs spend most of their lives in trees, but they also spend considerable time on the ground, moving in a very distinctive hop. The Ring-Tailed Lemur is an average sized lemur, with a height of 15-18” inches with a tail length of 22-25” inches. They weigh about 5-7 pounds. This lemur takes its common name from the ringed pattern on the tail. Lemurs are prosimians which means "before apes" in Latin.
