Brown Lemurs


Native to Madagascar, all species of lemurs are endangered species and are protected by special laws. We are honored to maintain these species and care for them in a healthy captive environment. 


What is a Lemur?


Members of the primate family, lemurs are long muscular animals that live in the jungle of Madagascar. They have plush fur and long hanging non-prehensile tails. Most domestic lemurs are about the size of a domestic house cat. 


Lemurs are intelligent and have very distinct personalities. When raised in an appropriate environment a lemur can be an enjoyable companion.
