Bamboo Lemurs in GURPS

Hapalemur sp., Prolemur simus

Bamboo lemurs live in Madagascar's bamboo forests. They are found in the bamboo, climbing up the stalks and jumping from plant to plant. These lemurs eat almost entirely bamboo, and are able to detoxify the large doses of cyanide found in the bamboo shoots. They live in groups of a male, one or two females, and their young.

There are several species of bamboo lemur, most average around 1 to 1.5 kg. The greater bamboo lemur Prolemur simus has a typical adult mass of about 2.5 kg and lives in groups of one to two dozen animals.
