Ring-tailed lemurs (Lemur catta) have a very unique social structure within their groups. The female L. catta are the most dominant in this society. Unlike many other species of primates where males are more dominant, it’s the females that call the shots in lemur society. The females create a stable core in each group, while the males transfer from one group to another.
