Mountain Lemurs, also known as the babakoto or indri, are the largest living species lemur. They are herbivores, eating mainly plants, leaves, and fruits. They are also known for their loud vocal communications, making sounds ranging from singing to roaring. They often vocalise together in roaring sequences. They are diurnal, monogamous tree dwellers, with long strong arms to help them move freely amongst the canopy. They are closely related to sifakas. Like most lemurs, they live in female dominated groups, usually consisting of a mated pair and their offspring, (though this is not exactly the case in All Hail King Julien, as the leaders rule over a kingdom of mountain lemurs as well). Usually, within a group, these dominant females lead the group during travel, and have access to the best food and most comfortable resting areas. Both genders often have black and white fur, (though Sage is a notable exception). In All Hail King Julien, the mountain lemurs live in one large kingdom (consisting of smaller groups such as the royal family), and are currently ruled by Sage and his wife Clover (who is not a mountain lemur).
