    Mystery critter photographed

    This is kind of cool - http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/10349671/ - I'm a closet naturalist , so I totally dig this sort of stuff! Plus, anybody with *any* interest in critter design I'm sure would love something like this!

    oh, that's damn interessting! I love this kind of discoveries since it is a kind of strange feeling to see something completely new. Of course I don't know each creature that has been discovered till now but it's always great to see something "new and mysterious". Once I watched a reportage about creatures living in the ocean on TV and it was absolutely exciting to see a "sleeper shark", a shark that has only been filmed about one or two times ever. Thats awesome!!

    I'm sure that you can't tell much from a blurry photo, but it looks an awefull lot like a lemur in that shot. Still, if it really is a new species, that's pretty darned cool. Not too often these days a new mammal is found.

    Ah yes, a new mamal species! A friend of mine told me about this today but he cited an online source that didn't seem really credible. But now the news is everywhere so my skepticism dropped a whole lot. I just wish there were photos with more definition. Still, this is really cool.

    EDIT: The research group is called "WWF", lol.

    I laughed when I saw WWF too, Broken, but then I remembered the World Wildlife Foundation was using it long before wrestling was around.

    Well if it was taken where they said, in Borneo, that would be a long way for a lemur to stray since I think they are only native to Madagascar. However, if they are going to find new spieces Borneo is the place to do it.

    If you go to the site, turn up the volume on your speakers, and click on the picture, it plays a faint sound... something like this...

    I like to move it, move it.
    I like to move it, move it.
    I like to move it, move it.

    You like to...
    Cool, huh?

    Move it!


    Actually, when the image first loaded, I thought how much it reminded me of the Lcoh Ness Monster.

    Then I realized that I was focusing on the tail...


    But I dig when new species are discovered where none were even suspected.
    "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than you can comfortably barbeque in a normal weekend."

    Or something like that.

    Actually, new species of invertebrates are discovered on a pretty regular basis. But it doesn't cause the same effect in the public as findind a new, large, rare mamal species.

    Afterall not many people get exited over new tick or small crab varieties

    They do get excited over new microbiological discoveries. Viruses are immensly popular. For example, recently people have been all a gaggle over "Bird Flu"

    get it? "all a gaggle...".

    never mind.

    I think the biggest surprise is that this new critter is a carnivore. It certainly is a drop-dead ringer for a relative of the lemurs in nearby Madagascar. Well, at least nearby compared to say, Cleveland. Work with me people.

    Those lemur critters tend to be mostly veggie critters, if memory serves.

    I just like saying critters, can you tell?
