Tiny mouse lemur


The tiny mouse lemur is the smallest of the lemurs. This mouse lemur was about 10cm and weighs around 40 grams! It was spotted on a night walk along the border of Andasibe-Mantadia National Park. Normally, these little guys are flighty so difficult to snap a picture of but this one remained put. These lemurs are nocturnal so their eyes are very sensitive to light. A torch (soft light) was used to spot it. Unfortunately, the guide did not do a good job of warning everyone not to use flash so the little guy was bombarded with flashes from the other tourists, stunning it. Hopefully, not blinding it.
