Black-and-White lemurs are the loudest of the Lemur species. They are the second loudest primate in the world only to be out-competed by the Howler Monkey.
The lemurs thick coat helps them to keep warm in he Madagascan mountain forest, up to heights of 3900 feet (this is significantly higher than Skiddaw). We have a mixed group of Lemurs here at the park and successfully breed this critically endangered species most years. We cooperate with other zoos and parks in the management of this species.
You may see their relatives at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
