Gremlins Thought Extinct, Found By A&M Researcher

A Texas A&M anthropologist has discovered a long-lost primate in Indonesia.

It's called a pygmy tarsier, and they've not been see alive in 85 years.

The furry gremlin-looking creatures are about the size of a small mouse and weigh less than 2 ounces.

Anthropologist Sharon Gursky-Doyen and a team of locals trapped three of the nocturnal creatures in Indonesia in late August.

Gursky-Doyen says she is eager to return to gain more first-hand knowledge about the creatures and work toward their preservation.

Whatever happens, she says she hopes the tarsiers won't slip back into oblivion.
