Ring-tailed lemurs are the most vocal of the 25 species of lemurs of the planet. All species are native to the Madagascar islands. Their distinct tails are longer than their bodies, and its quite a useful tool for them. Male lemurs are known to put scents on their tails before waving them in the air - this is known as ‘stink fighting’. Apart from that, their cat-like appearance also gets them the Latin name ‘Catta’.
