Ring-tailed lemur communication is complex as they utilize visual, vocal, olfactory, and tactile communication.
Ring-tailed lemurs live in groups of 15 to 30 individuals called troops. These expansive troops are the largest groups of any lemur species.
Visual communication signals, such as body postures and facial expressions are used in addition to vocal communication and scent marking.
Tactile communication is important between mothers and their young, as well as between mates. This includes grooming, play, and mating.
