Northern Treeshrew

Tupaia belangeri

Mating for life, treeshrew pairs avidly defend their territory from other shrews. Parents have a separate nest that they build for their young while they stay in their own nest. Only visiting the young to feed them, adults will not even clean or groom their offspring. This is possibly an adaptation to avoid luring predators to the nest.
