New Fossil Primate on Newsfeed - Big news! A new fossil has been found everybody! The previously unknown primate species, now named Mescalerolemur, lived some 43 million years ago in west Texas. The primate was basically like a mini version of a lemur. And if you don't know what a lemur is, it’s basically what it would look like if a skunk and a fox had a baby with thumbs. The Mescalerolemur was tiny, only about 13 ounces. Im glad they're extinct. Can you imagine they were still around now? All these weird little things, running around Texas with guns and Cowboy hats? Creepy.
