Red-bellied Lemur

Eulemur rubriventer

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



Size: 36 - 42cm
Weight: 2 - 2.4kg



The red-bellied lemur is found throughout the mountainous rainforests of eastern Madagascar



In the wild red-bellied lemurs will eat mostly fruit, flowers and leaves and are actually important seed dispersers for many plants.



The female usually gives birth to one young after a pregnancy of around 4 months, however twins are not uncommon.



The major threats to the red-bellied lemurs are habitat loss, for agriculture and timber, and hunting. Our red-bellied lemurs are part of the European Conservation Breeding Programme and we have had 5 young here at Africa Alive!
