There are many different species of lemurs. The smallest of them is the pygmy mouse lemur, while the largest is indri lemur weighing a massive fifteen pounds. However, the lemurs that most often make it as pets are mouse lemurs and ring tailed lemurs. The mouse lemur is between 4.7 inches and 5.7 inches in length.
