Yesterdays post made me more curious about the mouse lemur. Believe it or not, 3 new species of mouse lemurs were found in Madagascar in 2006 and were named after 3 primatologists: Microcebus mittermeieri, Microcebus jollyae, and Microcebus simmonsi, which are all endangered. You may wonder why they are named after primatologists, but lemurs are in fact primates!

This shows you how small the mouse lemurs are!


This one looks just like Mort!!!


I always look forward to seeing each and every one of you here! I hope to see you all here again tomorrow! I will be back with a cake to celebrate all the awesome accomplishments a bit later.

Welcome, yjohn; glad you found SR.

Browsing the SR site is a great idea; there's lots of great information here - could keep you busy for ages.

Glad to hear you didn't go to the bar. 'Just one' usually doesn't end well for us alcoholics.
