It is arboreal, spending most of its time in the high canopy of the seasonal rainforests on the eastern side of the island. The Black-and-white Ruffed Lemur is diurnal, active exclusively in daylight hours. As the most frugivorous of lemurs, the diet consists mainly of fruit, although nectar and flowers are also favored, followed by leaves and some seeds.
