Jollys mouse lemur

Jolly’s mouse lemur (Microcebus jollyae) is a species of mouse lemur from Mananjary and Kianjavato in Madagascar. The species is named in honor of primatologist Alison Jolly. Jolly’s mouse lemur is uniformly reddish-brown with a small white patch on the snout and a completely gray belly. 

The finding was announced June 21, 2006 at the Conservation International Global Symposium in Antananarivo, Madagascar, along with the discovery of Mittermeier’s mouse lemur and Simmons’ mouse lemur as separate species. These new species were also officially announced in a paper in the International Journal of Primatology.

This species is considered endangered, but the number of wild members is not clear. This also means that there has not been space for a tourism industry, around this species. Should this change in the future, we will try to add links beneath this.
