Gerp's Mouse Lemur

We just learned about the Greater Dwarf Lemur.

Another type of lemur is the Gerp's Mouse Lemur, also called microcebus gerpi.

Mouse lemurs are the smallest type of primate in the world, and they are usually about the size of a small mouse but with a longer fuzzy tail.
The Gerp's Mouse Lemur only grows to be about 2 ounces, and is only a few inches long.
Like all lemurs it lives only on the island of Madagascar.

These primates mostly live up in little nests in the trees almost like birds nest.
Their fur is mostly a brownish grey with some red and white on their bellies or faces.
