Leptospirosis is a zoonosis caused by Leptospira, a diversified genus containing more than 10 pathogenic species. Tenrecs are small terrestrial mammals endemic in the Malagasy region and are known to be reservoirs of the recently de- scribed species Leptospira mayottensis. We report the complete genome sequences of three L. mayottensis strains isolated from two tenrec species.
