There's a very wide range of different types of lemur. I think the most common is the ringtailed lemur, which is very gregarious. They move around in large packs, and it's quite funny to see a whole bunch of them moving through long grass. All you see is a host of black and white tails moving along, held aloft above the grass. They are not particularly wary of humans (most lemurs are), and if you find yourself in the midst of them they'll clamber all over you and try to stuff bananas in your Nikon. They're very playful and energetic. I don't remember the quality of their fur particularly.
