Gray Mouse Lemur

Grey Mouse Lemur, MadagascarMouse lemurs are one of the smallest primates in the world, although the gray mouse lemur is the largest of the mouse lemurs. Still, they measure just ten inches in length, half of which is the tail, and weigh about two ounces. They are strictly nocturnal and quick little guys so were difficult to photograph. This one stopped for just a second to check me out and I was able to get the shot. Like all lemurs, they are found only in Madagascar and the surrounding islands.
