Lost and Found

Not seen since 1921, and long thought extinct, the pygmy tarsier (pictured) has been located on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi -- far enough away from humans, one hopes, to avoid another brush with extinction.

This tiny primate provides proof that nature will find a way, even when faced with the onslaught of "progress." Go, litte tarsier!

More information about the discovery is available here.
