The process of acquisition and propagation of a novel behavior pattern in a group of 18Lemur catta was examined. Six of eight animals that acquired the new habit were infants or juveniles. Adult males did not take up the new behavior pattern. Effects of rank and kinship on the aquisition process were not obvious.
