Anosy mouse lemur

The Anosy mouse lemur is a species of mouse lemur known only from the Manantantely Forest and Ivorona Forest in southeastern Madagascar, near Tôlanaro.

 Specimens were first collected in April 2007, and though its discovery was announced in 2013 along with the Marohita mouse lemur after being fully confirmed. It is a large mouse lemur and lives in the same region as the gray mouse lemur and the reddish-gray mouse lemur, all three of which are found within 10 km (6.2 mi) of each other and are nearly identical in appearance. It has dark brownish fur on its back and light-coloured fur on its underside. Nothing is known about its behaviour. Its conservation status is expected to be evaluated as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and its known habitat has degraded since 2007.

Given the perilous status of this species, it is unlikely that much tourism opportunities will appear around it in the near future, though I will list any that I come across. Never-the-less any ecotourism in the area, is likely to positively benefit this species.

There does not appear to be any media on this species. If any articles on this species are added, these will all be listed below. Below this, we will add any links that might be useful.
