Tiny Monkey - Reminder of Flight of the Navigator

Remember the little creature in the Disney movie Flight of the Navigator? This tiny monkey, discovered still to exist in Indonesia, reminds me of that.

"The tiny Furby-like pygmy tarsier, presumed to be extinct, was found during a recent expedition to Indonesia. And the cuddly, huge-eyed nocturnal critter is the very definition of cute.

"'They always look like they have a perpetual smile on their face, which adds to the attraction', says physical anthropologist Sharon Gursky-Doyen, who found the presumed lost species."

Look at those eyes! Yes, cute indeed.
