The Ankarana sportive lemur is a smaller sportive lemur endemic to Madagascar. They have a mouse-like appearance with a narrow face, bulging orange eyes, and big, round ears. They have a light grey-brown pelage, a grey underside, and a light brown bushy tail. Long fingers and wide finger pads are also useful for gripping.
They are arboreal and nocturnal animals; they rest in tree holes and vine tangles during the day. They are also very agile and can leap between trees with ease. During the rainy season, their diet consists of a large proportion of fruits as they are abundant. During the dry season, they primarily consume leaves.
