Dwarf and mouse lemurs live in Madagascar, an island off the southeast coast of Africa.

Dwarf and mouse lemurs live in a variety of forested habitats, including evergreen rainforest, deciduous forest where trees lose their leaves each year, and semiarid forest, which doesn't get rain part of the year. Mouse lemurs are also found in patches of scrub vegetation where there are small bushes, and in people's gardens in settled areas.

Dwarf and mouse lemurs are not often hunted for food because of their small size.
