Black Lemur

Eulemur macaco

Black lemurs, like all lemurs, are prosimian, which means they are closely related to monkeys and other primates. Male and female black lemurs can easily be recognised as it is only the male that is actually black! Females are brown in colour.



Size: Head / Body Length 38 - 45cm
Weight: 2 - 2.5kg



The black lemur lives in the northwest of Madagascar in the Sambirano region and on the islands just offshore.



Their diet is varied, eating mainly fruit but also flowers, leaves, fungi and occasionally invertebrates.



Black lemurs give birth to 1 young after a 4 month pregnancy. Initially the young will cling to mum’s belly then after 3 weeks will move to her back.



The black lemur is threatened by deforestation and is also hunted for food or killed as a crop pest. They are also trapped to be sold as pets even though this is illegal.
