The considerable diversity of locomotor behavior within the suborder Prosimii largely is due to differences in locomotion between families. Within families, locomotion is relatively homogeneous, although some species, such as Otolemur crassicaudatus among the galagids and Hapalemur simus and Lepilemur spp. among the lemurids, differ from other species in their family. This paper describes the locomotion of a captive colony of red‐bellied lemurs, Eulemur rubriventer (following the classification… Expand
