The Schleich® figurines are all modelled in finest detail and encourage children to play and learn at the same time. Ring-tailed lemurs are small monkeys with long, black and white curled tails. They are active during the day, live in small groups and like to cuddle up together. At night they sleep in trees. During the day they scavenge for fruit and leaves. The leader of a group of ring-tailed lemurs is always female. The only other animal groups led by females are hyenas and meerkats.
