It belongs to Lemuridae, one of five lemur families, and is the only member of the Lemurgenus. Like all lemurs it is endemic to the island of Madagascar. Known locally in Malagasy as maky ([makʲ], spelled maki in French) or hira, it inhabits gallery forests to spiny scrub in the southern regions of the island. It isomnivorous and the most terrestrial of extant lemurs. The animal is diurnal, being active exclusively in daylight hours. source
