The black and white ruffed lemur (Varecia variegata variegata) is one of the largest lemurs alive today. From the top of the head to the tip of the tail they can grow up to four feet long, but they only weigh eight or ten pounds. Both males and females look the same, with black and white markings and a ruff or fringe of long white fur around their ears and neck.
Black and white ruffed lemurs live in small groups. There are usually only two to five lemurs in each group.Black and white ruffed lemurs live in the eastern rainforests of Madagascar. They eat fruit and other plants. Black and white ruffed lemurs are endangered because people are cutting down their forest homes in order to grow food.
