Lemur is an endemic primate island of Madagascar. The name ‘lemur’ itself comes from the word ‘lemures’ which comes from Roman mytology which means ghost or spirit, which was first used to describe the type of slow loris that is active at night and is slow moving, but later is more directed at this native primate species of Madagascar.
Although lemurs are a type of primate, they are not the result of the evolution of monkeys and apes. They only have the same morphology and habits as other primates.
Lemur sizes vary, ranging from weighing 30 grams to 9 kg. Lemur’s main food is fruit and leaves. Although the lemurs’ food is the same, but lemurs of different species have their own ‘game’, even though they live in the same forest.
