Stumbled over a very interesting article yesterday in the local paper (yes, occasionally they do bring interesting articles there :P) about Madagascar. Since 1999, 600 new species have been discovered in the forests of Madagascar. One of the 'new' species is this little fellow - the tiniest lemur there is. He's only 9 cm and weighs just a few kilograms.
These unique creatures are unfurtunately threatened with extinction. One of the reasons is of course our exploitation of the rainforest - the home of these primates.
More about lemurs at Wikipedia.
I decided to leave later this morning than I usually do ... I'm simply making a point. Nothing more - nothing less. And anyway - most likely I'll be working late, so putting myself on energy save mode as long as I can :P
