4209, LEMUR, MADAGASCAR 13'' are anatomically scaled to create the best reproduction of the life size stuffed animal and the most realistic stuffed animal in the industry.
The Red ruffed lemurs are unique, medium-sized lemurs with a primate-like appearance. These animals differ greatly from all other types of lemur. They exhibit thick, soft, reddish coat with a long, black and heavily furred tail. The tail base is ringed with pink colored fur. On the top of their head, the Red ruffed lemurs display a conspicuous white colored tuff. They have black faces and long snouts.
The natural range of this species is the Masoala Peninsula in northeastern Madagascar, where the Red ruffed lemurs generally occupy deciduous tropical forests.
Currently, the Red ruffed lemurs are among the most endangered lemur species in Madagascar due to tiny range and small population. Most Red ruffed lemurs live outside the protected area called the Masoala Nature Reserve, which poses additional threat to the survival of these animals. The Red ruffed lemurs are often captured for pet or animal trade. Other notable threats to this species are hunting and habitat destruction.
- Like all prosimian species, these lemurs use only their teeth when grooming because of not having extensive digit coordination.
- The second toe on each of their hind foot has a special claw, helping the animal brush its long and fluffy fur.
- Along with well-developed senses of smell, vision and hearing, these lemurs are able to identify group members by scent glands, found on their rump.
- When threatened, Red ruffed lemurs emit alarm calls that are heard and recognized by their co-subspecies, the Black and white ruffed lemurs. These two animals recognize warning signals of each other, which help them to avoid threats.
- These two above mentioned subspecies occasionally interbreed, yielding an offspring with black, white, and red coloration.
- Due to the habit of spreading their legs to sunbathe, the Red ruffed lemurs were considered by early native people of the area as sacred animals, worshipping the sun. Hence, these animals weren't hunted for centuries thanks to this mistaken belief.
- The thick and heavily furred tail of this animal is multifunctional. When threatened, the lemur gives visual signals with its tail. When leaping between trees, it uses its tail as a prop to balance.
