The Common brown lemur or Eulemur fulvus lives in western Madagascar north of the Betsiboka River and eastern Madagascar between the Mangoro River and Tsaratanana, as well as in inland Madagascar connecting the eastern and western ranges. They also live on the island of Mayotte.

The Common brown lemur or Eulemur fulvus has a total length of 33 to 40 in, including 16 to 20 in. of tail. Weight ranges from 4.4 to 6.6 lbs. The short, dense fur is primarily brown or grey-brown. The face, muzzle and crown are dark grey or black with paler eyebrow patches, and the eyes are orange-red.

Their diet consists primarily of fruits, young leaves, and flowers. In some locations it eats invertebrates, such as cicadas, spiders and millipedes. It also eats bark, sap, soil and red clay.

Consistent with its large range, the Common brown lemur or Eulemur fulvus occupies a variety of forest types, including lowland rain forests, montane rainforests, moist evergreen forests and dry deciduous forests. They spend about 95 percent of their time in upper layers of the forest and less than 2 percent of their time on the ground.

Eulemur fulvus normally live in groups of 5 to 12, but group size can be larger, especially on Mayotte. Groups occupy home ranges of 1 to 9 hectares in the west, but more than 20 hectares in the east. Groups include members of both sexes, including juveniles, and there are no discernible dominance hierarchies.

In the western part of its range, the Common brown lemur or Eulemur fulvus overlaps that of the mongoose lemur, and the two species sometimes travel together. In the areas of overlap, the two species also adapt their activity patterns to avoid conflict. For example, the Mongoose Lemur can become primarily nocturnal during the dry season in the areas of overlap.
