Crateromys australis (Dinagat bushy-tailed cloud rat)

Wikipedia Abstract

The Dinagat Bushy-tailed Cloud Rat or Dinagat Island Cloud Rat (Crateromys australis) is a species of rodent in the family Muridae. It is found only in Philippines. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical dry forests. The main threat is habitat loss caused by deforestation and chromite mining. It was long known only by the holotype collected by Dioscoro S. Rabor in 1975 until it was rediscovered and filmed by Czech zoologist Milada Řeháková and her husband in January 2012.
