Lesser Tenrecs originate from Southern Madagascar and have only recently grown to be more popular pets within the United States. They tend to have calm, friendly temperaments and are comfortable being handled by humans.

Their diet consists mainly of live insects and high protein cat or ferret kibble. They are amazing climbers, meaning you'll want a cage with both adequate floor space as well vertical room for plenty of climbing obstacles.

Please read our care guide to learn more about them and confirm they will make a good fit for your home.
