Something a little different today from the archives. Many thanks for all the C&C's on my last upload and apologies for just clicking on yours. Time is in short supply and tiredness full on. A couple of facts for you.
Despite their name the Norhern tree shrew spends much time on the ground rooting through leaf litter using their elongated sensitive noses to find insects and seeds. Tree shrew babies are fed just once every 2 days. Diet is insects, fruit, seeds, leaves, occasional small mammals and lizards.
The Northern tree shrew is found in a variety of habitats including deciduous and evergreen primary forest and secondary forest, oil palm and coconut plantations. Found in South East Asia.
Best wishes and have a great weekend,
Steve.
