WILDLIFE -- Battles of the Mothers: Ring-tailed Lemurs

Ring-tailed lemurs are easily recognized by their black and white long tails. They inhabit forests in the dry regions of southern Madagascar. They live in female dominated groups. When territorial disputes break out, females engage in fierce fights. They pounce and kick at each other, all the while carrying their young on their backs. Males, however, don't participate in these fights. They prefer instead to go about their business. This episode follows the unique behavior of ring-tailed lemurs.
