Madame Berthes mouse lemur is identified as the smallest primate in the world. The body is about 9.2 cm (3.2 in) in length and the weight is about 30 g (1.1 oz). The only home for this lemur is the Menabe region in the island of Madagascar.
Madame Berthes Mouse lemurs eat variety of food. Fruits and sugary stuff produced by insects are very important diets for them. As nocturnal predators they catch insects and small reptiles in the night. On the other hand the predators of them include civets, mongooses, owls and snakes also on the move during the night.
The reduction of habitat caused by illegal logging and slash-and-burn agriculture threatens survival of Madame Berthes mouse lemur.
By the way all primates have five fingers with nails like us. They can hold things with hand. The eyes of primates face forward and give them accurate perception of distance.
