Brief Summary

Read full entry


Brown lemurs live in cohesive groups without a noticeable hierarchy, generally numbering from 3 to 12 individuals, although five to seven seems to be average (2) (6). Breeding occurs in June (6), with a single offspring born between September and October, after a gestation period of approximately 120 days (5) (6). White-fronted brown lemurs can live up to 30 years (2) (5). This species is cathemeral, meaning it is active at varying times throughout the day and night. Fruit, mature leaves, flowers, bark, sap, soil, insects, centipedes and millipedes form the bulk of this lemur's diet (7).
