Some ways to reduce the likelihood of your ring-tailed lemur from becoming aggressive include:
Raising them in a more â€œhands offâ€ method. After the hand-feeding stage, allow them to roam free in a large outdoor enclosure rather than living indoors with humans 24/7.
Raising them in a troop setting. Get two or more lemurs to raise together.
If you wonâ€™t do either of the 2 methods above, then make sure you have a backup plan when (not if) your lemur starts attacking people. A large outdoor enclosure for them to live out the rest of their lives, and with at least one other ring-tailed lemur companion.
Ruffed lemurs are far more likely to remain docile and will remain gentle and handleable as adults.
