DISCLAIMER: This little monkey isn’t really a monkey, its a tarsier.

But its still really cute. And no its not a zombie. For over 70 years these little fellers have not been seen in the wild and were presumed extinct. But several of the bite-sized fuzzy critters were recently re-discovered in Indonesia.

They’ve been compared to Furbys, Gremlins, Aliens and Chicken Nuggets, but they are vicious carnivorous blighters. Normally content to hunt down large bugs, they apparently bit several of the research team who re-discovered them.
