Grey Mouse Lemur

(microcebus murinus)
The Grey Mouse Lemur is the largest of the mouse lemurs. It is found quite widely on the west of Madagascar in almost any type of forest ranging from moist lowland rain-forest to dry spiny forest. In some areas it can be extremely abundant reaching densities of several hundered individuals per square kilometre. As can be deduced from the large eyes, it is nocturnal spending the day in tree holes of other cavities.
The pair photographed at Kirindy were using a hollow wooden pillar in the restaurant hut as their daytime roost. They could be teased out by the offer of some banana smeared on the wood.
