One of the smallest of the bamboo lemurs (5), the eastern lesser bamboo lemur has a dense, woolly coat that is grey to olive-grey on the upperparts, with chestnut-brown tinges on the head, shoulders, and sometimes the back. The face and underparts are a paler grey, becoming creamy-grey on the belly, and the long tail is generally dark. Like other bamboo lemurs, the head is rounded, and bears a characteristically short muzzle and small, furred ears. Relatively long back legs allow bamboo lemurs to leap easily between vertical bamboo stems. Bamboo lemurs are reported to use a variety of different calls, including distinct calls in response to different types of predators. Listed as vulnerable in the IUCN Redlist facing threats such as habitat loss and the illegal pet trade
The eastern lesser bamboo lemur occurs in tropical moist lowland forest and montane forest, in areas where bamboo and bamboo vines are present, and may inhabit both disturbed and undisturbed forest
