Ring-tailed Lemurs use their stripy tails for 'stink fights' where they rub their tails against scent glands on their arms and wave them over their heads at their rivals.
Ring-tailed lemurs are endangered in the wild. Their forest habitat is being destroyed for agriculture, charcoal production and mining for gemstones and minerals.
