  1. I OWN this one.

    Actually, I don’t.

    Looks like some type of Lemur. Or Alien – -the cute kind of alien, not the evil kind. Or maybe a new character for the Lord of the Rings movies. But I’m going with Lemur.

    Yep, THAT is my ex-mother-in-law, with those knuckles, beedy eyes, clinging to anything long & round (or looks like a wallet), and the fuzzy house-coat. She IS a branch manager. But I don’t see the beer can or liquor bottle, so that may not be her.

  8. ANSWER TIME:

    This is a tarsier. Tarsiers are tiny nocturnal primates, found only in Southeast Asia. From the Wiki entry:

    Tarsiers are small animals with enormous eyes; each eyeball is approximately 16 mm in diameter and is as large as their entire brain. Tarsiers also have very long hind limbs. In fact, their feet have extremely elongated tarsus bones, from which the animals get their name.

      I actually knew this one, though I didn’t remember the correct spelling at first. Of course, I didn’t see this post till 12/9. Drat you, Google Reader! :)

  10. Both tarsier and aye aye are classed as a “vertical clinger and leaper” (from class in primate social behavior)so look a lot alike. This little guy is really clinging!

    The little dude’s eyes are bigger than his brain. Gee, I thought I had it bad when my eyes are bigger than my stomach.
