Lemurs, like Man, belong to the order known as primates, though strictly speaking lemurs are lower primates or prosimians. Of the lemurs there are three distinct groups - the small, dwarf and mouse lemurs, the larger lemurs such as the ring-tailed, and a third group which contains just one species, the weasel lemur.  00  Facts Telesoftware Rock/Pop ORACLE Kids

Young are dependent on their mothers for the first six months only. Lemurs feed chiefly on fruit and insect life, though they will sometimes eat reptiles and small birds. They have few natural enemies apart from Man, though eagles can be a threat.  12/12 Facts Telesoftware Rock/Pop ORACLE Kids

The ring-tailed lemur is perhaps the most well-known species, with its distinctive panda-like eyes and long bushy tail. It is a highly active creature, both in the trees and on the ground where it walks around on all fours with its tail held high behind it. Troops typically consist of between 20 and 40 lemurs. 11  Facts Telesoftware Rock/Pop ORACLE Kids

They are expert swimmers and divers, and can move with surprising speed on land. They are naturally playful and can be taught to perform simple tricks. The family at the Welsh Zoo become stars twice a day when they perform in front of a delighted audience. Cousteau, the youngest, is still learning at this stage and is slowly picking up the tricks by watching the older ones perform. 5  Facts Telesoftware Rock/Pop ORACLE Kids

Sealions eat far less food in the summer than in the winter as their body heat is more easily maintained. This fact can act as a clue in our competition!
