Pen-Tailed Treeshrew (Ptilocercus lowii)

Series of measured illustrations of the Pen-Tailed Treeshrew

A major discovery scientists have found about the Pen-tailed Treeshrew (Ptilocercus lowii) is that it can consume a lot of alcohol without getting drunk. This alcohol is found in the nectar of the bertam palm. You will mostly find this treeshrew in rubber farms, forest edges, and primary and secondary forests in Thailand, Malaysia, and nearby small islands. The belly is whitish or yellow, while the back is gray or light brown. But it is the “pen tail” plume-like hair on the end of the tail that makes it easily identifiable. This hair is black, fading to white. Alternatively, you can also identify it with the black eye mask. The pen-tailed treeshrew is nocturnal, social, and omnivorous.

The Pen-Tailed Treeshrew has a body length in the range of 5.1”-5.5” (13-14 cm) and total weight of 1.8-2.1 oz (50-60 g). The Pen-Tailed Treeshrew has a standing height of roughly 2.4”-2.75” (6-7 cm), body width of 1.6”-2” (4-5 cm), and tail length of 6.3”-7.5” (16-19 cm). The typical lifespan of the Pen-Tailed Treeshrew is between 2-12.5 years.

Treeshrews, or Scandentia, are small arboreal mammals endemic to South and Southeast Asia. They are mostly found in tropical forests and resemble rats except for their pointy snouts. They are omnivorous, though some are insectivorous. Besides, some don’t live in trees.
