No problem. The Mammals of Madagascar by Nick Garbutt is an essential book to have if you've been to Madagascar.

Thanks so much! The guide on my night hike was not familiar with this type of lemur so I never knew.

Shari, I was doing some research on mouse lemurs in the Mammals of Madagascar book and I actually think this is a fat tailed dwarf lemur.
