Scientists rediscover pocket-sized primate

Scientists rediscover pocket-sized primate: "t looks like a tangerine-sized cross between a furry Furby and a gremlin, and hadn't been seen alive since the 1920s. But the pygmy tarsier has made an unlikely comeback.

Scientists believed these tiny primates, weighing less than two ounces, were extinct until researchers recently found some in the mountaintop forests of Indonesia."
