Order: Scandentia

Tree shrews have often been considered a divergent family of Insectivora. They differ from members of that family, however, in possessing complete auditory bullae and zygomatic arches. Their orbits are large, and behind the orbit is a well-developed and complete postorbital process. Some investigators have suggested that they might also be related to Primates. The order contains one family (Tupaiidae) containing 5 genera and around 19 living species.  - University of Michigan Museum of Zoology.
