    I thought it was a really small brontosaurus for a while there. :eek:

    It's true, everything's upside down, Down Under.

    Good one. :)

    That's quite some tail it has there and it's a carnivore? Makes me somehow think it's not that cuddly...

    It's all relative, isn't it? Who knows what ancestors it had...unless it does.

    Yeah, me too.

    When I saw it the right way I figured it for a coati. I saw another article that said that locals figure it for a lemur.

    Thing is coati aren't indigenous to anywhere near borneo.

    Haha, I thought you were on crack until I looked back at the photo! You are so awesome! Haha.

    That said, the last part of the article is to be expected. :( But still a bit saddening.

    I'd so love to be there when they finally catch one in a live trap and find it can talk.

    And it'll demand $10,000 cash upfront before speaking on camera.

    It looks like it could be related to the Tarsier. Very interesting.

    What a weird forum. They tried to attract google ads for Lemur. Who would do such a stupid thing. ;)

    This is really fascinating. It just goes to show there's plenty of unknowns still out there in the world. I'm sure there are many more species of relatively big animals that remain undiscovered out there in the jungle...
