|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
This lemur weighs only about three to four pounds. It lives in the dry forests of northwestern Madagascar, where it searches for its diet of nectar, fruit, flowers, and leaves during daytime and night-time hours. A typical group of mongoose lemurs includes an adult male and female with offspring, though larger groups may occur in some habitats. Males can be recognized by their brown cheek hair.
