This chapter investigates the treeshrews' use of space. The analysis of daily activities of treeshrews indicates that the home ranges of treeshrews are often highly irregular in outline, with odd hollows and protuberances. The chapter explains that the mean home-range sizes for treeshrews ranged from 1.5 to 10.5 hectares, and suggests that the size of their home ranges is partly determined by their rate of metabolism. It also describes the speed and daily distance travelled by treeshrews, and their patterns of travel and destinations.
