Slender Treeshrew Tupaia gracilis photographed by Mike Gordon at Deramakot
Lesser Treeshrew Tupia minor is frequently mistaken for Slender Treeshrew. However according to Louise Emmons (2000) Lesser Treeshrew is mainly aboreal and feeds mainly in vines and trees whilst Slender Treeshrew forages in low bushes for caterpillars and is rarely seen above 1.5 m from the ground.
