Our Red-ruffed Lemur
This engaging-looking plastic red-ruffed lemur replica is made of solid plastic with a flexible tail. It is 2 1/2 inches long and 1 3/4 tall. The fur is detailed and the red-ruffed lemur is painted in dark red, black and white. Our red-ruffed lemur miniature has a concerned expression but promises not to bite. This lemur replica makes an interesting pet or gift and fits nicely into a shoebox diorama for a school project about Madagascar. Check out our other lemur toys and gifts.
About Red-ruffed Lemurs
Lemurs are prosimians. They are primates, but are not as highly evolved as monkeys or great apes. One easily recognizable feature that differs between the lemurs and other primates is the long, almost dog-like nose of the lemurs. Whereas the other primates rely more heavily on vision and hearing, lemurs rely more on their sense of smell. There are 11 species of true lemurs and 7 species of dwarf lemurs. Lemurs are found only in the woodlands on the island of Madagascar, and the Comoro Islands near Madagascar. The red ruffed lemur is known for its reddish coloring and thick neck ruff.
