Mongoose Lemur

Eulemur mongoz

Mongoose lemurs, like all lemurs, are prosimians, which means they are closely related to monkeys and other primates.



Size: 32 - 37cm
Weight: 2 - 2.2kg



The mongoose lemur is one of only two lemur species found on the Comoro Islands as well as in Madagascar. It is found in forest habitats.



Their diet consists mainly of fruit however, in the dry season, leaves, insects and grubs are also eaten.



Mongoose lemur give birth to one young, or occasionally twins, after a pregnancy of just over 4 months.



The mongoose lemur is seriously threatened in the wild by habitat loss and hunting. Their population is believed to be declining at a rate of around 80% over less than 25 years! Our mongoose lemurs are part of the European Breeding Programme and joined us in 2005 from our sister park, Banham Zoo.
