Meet the National Animals of Madagascar!

The National Animal of Madagascar is the Ring-tailed Lemur.

Ring-tailed Lemurs are black-and-white animals with long striped tails.

They live in groups called troops and are found in the southwestern part of Madagascar.

Ring-tailed Lemurs eat fruits, leaves, flowers, and bark.

They like to climb trees and spend time on the ground too.

These lemurs have special scent glands on their wrists to mark their territory.

They make different sounds to communicate with each other.

Ring-tailed Lemurs are important for Madagascar's biodiversity.

Sadly, they are in danger because of habitat loss and hunting.

We need to protect them to ensure their survival.
