Great capture Kathy, I can definitely see by the looks on their faces how you arrived at your title. Thank you for sharing some interesting facts, I saw a special not to long ago about them and it's really interesting to see how they take care of each and they definitely are a vocal bunch. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. #10881736

Description

Ring-tailed lemurs are one of the most vocal primates. They have several different alarm calls with distinct meanings to alert members of their group to potential danger.
When ring-tailed troops travel throughout their home range, they keep their tails raised in the air, like flags, to keep group members together.
Ring-tailed lemurs can spend up to 50% of their day on the ground.
They have scent glands on their wrists and chests that they use to mark their foraging routes. Males even have a horny spur on each wrist gland that they use to pierce tree branches before scent marking them.
