New Mammal Species... and it's really cute

At the southern tip of Madagascar are forests little-known by humans. When humans do go in, they find things.  Like the Lavasoa Dwarf lemur, the world's newest mammal. Cheirogaleus lavasoensis is the official name.  In a reminder this species-description stuff takes a long time, 16 specimens were trapped between 2001 and 2006.  Discovery never ends....
