The Black-and-white Ruffed Lemur (Varecia variegata) is one of the two species of ruffed lemurs, the other being the Red Ruffed Lemur. Like all lemurs, it is native only to Madagascar.
The Black-and-white Ruffed Lemur can grow up to 4 ft long, although typically a little smaller, and is about 7-10 lbs. Its lifespan in captivity is about 18 years but many live to 20. It is quadrupedal.
