From the Rhino's Heart

That's a small lemur!

Researchers who've completed the field work have announced the possible discovery of new species of lemur. Lemurs like the one pictured are forest mammal denizens in Madagascar. What caught my eye was the size of these little guys....about 68 grams in weight! That's under three ounces! BUT, it makes them GIANTS compared to one species of mouse lemur that averages about 44 grams in weight. (about an ounce and a half)

Here's the link to Science Daily, which also has the link to the original scientific article:

And look at those eyes......amazing critters.

The eyes kinda remind me of my first Burningman!
