Two Common Brown Lemurs (Eulemur fulvus)

It depends which type of Lemur you mean. They are all from the infraorder Lemuriformes but there are four different families that share the common name "lemur".

One of those families is Lemuridae which includes Common Brown Lemur from the genus Eulemur. Its species name is Eulemur fulvus.

Here is their scientific classification:

Lemurs (Gray, 1821):

  • Kingdom: Animalia
  • Phylum: Chordata
  • Class: Mammalia
  • Order: Primates
  • Suborder: Strepsirrhini
  • Infraorder: Lemuriformes
