    All the surviving lemurs in Madagascar are tree-dwelling, and many are nocturnal.Black and White Ruffed Lemur (Varecia variegata variegata) are found only in undisturbed forest in Eastern Madagascar. They normally live in female-dominated territorial groups of 2 -5 animals, occasionally meeting up to form larger bandsUnlike most other large lemurs, they normally produce twins or triplets and in April 1999 a female at Hewlett's successfully produced her second set of quadruplets! Unusually for primates, the young are left alone in a nest while the parents forage
