Sample text

If the predator is flying overhead, the ring-tail makes a screaming sound. And if the predator is sitting in a tree, the ring-tail chirps and moans. The lemur on the right is watching a predator. The lemur on the left is calling out to warn the rest of the troop. 39 This big patch of bare ground used to be covered with trees. People cut the trees down. Ring-tailed lemurs’ most dangerous enemy is humans. Some people hunt lemurs for food. And people are destroying ring-tailed lemurs’ forest homes.

Harrier hawks are predators that hunt lemurs. 37 This predator is a fossa. When a ring-tailed lemur sees a predator, the lemur warns the rest of the troop. It makes noises that tell the others where the predator is. These warnings help other members of the troop to stay safe. 38 If the predator is on the ground, the ringtail makes clicking sounds. If the predator is flying overhead, the ring-tail makes a screaming sound. And if the predator is sitting in a tree, the ring-tail chirps and moans. The lemur on the right is watching a predator.

32 All the troop’s babies play together. They wrestle together on the ground. They also play tag in the branches of trees. They go back to their mothers to nurse and to sleep. Baby ring-tails are playful. 33 When a baby ring-tail is about one month old, it starts to eat fruit and other solid food. But it still drinks milk too. When the ring-tail is five or six months old, it stops nursing. This baby lemur is tasting the tamarind fruit that its mother is eating. 34 Ring-tailed lemurs can live to be more than 20 years old.
