BiologyGoodman's mouse lemur is an arboreal and nocturnal species. Like other species belonging to the family Cheirogaleidae, it is likely that Goodman's mouse lemur breeds at about one year of age, and will give birth to two to four offspring each year, after two to three months gestation. They are likely to have a maximum lifespan of five years in the wild. Most mouse lemurs feed on a diet of fruit and small invertebrates (3).
