Black and white ruffed lemur
Varecia variegatus variegatus
Ruffed lemurs do not generally carry their young with them while foraging, but park them in a nest made from twigs, leaves and vines, high above the ground.
Visitors may hear our lemurs calling to their keepers with grunts, barking and roaring.
The black and white ruffed lemur is an EDGE species. Find out about the EDGE conservation programme for black and white ruffed lemurs here
