November 22, 2008: Gremlins

No, not this kind of Gremlin.



No, not this kind either.



This kind of Gremlin...
OK, it's not scientifically a Gremlin, it's a Pygmy Tarsier.


Quote:
Three specimens of the pygmy tarsier, a nocturnal creature about the size of a small mouse, were trapped and tracked
this summer on Mount Rorekatimbo in Lore Lindu National Park in Central Sulawesi, Texas A&M University reported.

Before this year, only three specimens had ever been collected, according to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
Two were found in 1916 and 1930. The third was a dead pygmy tarsier that Indonesian scientists found in a rat trap on
Mount Rorekatimbo in 2000. That motivated primatologists to intensify their search for a live specimen of the species,
"but none of them were able to find it," Gursky-Doyen said.
The link provided no recipes, but I imagine roasting them over a large bonfire of endangered tropical hardwoods would do it.

Gremlins need to be put in blenders. Or microwaves.



madepiphany  Saturday Nov 22 05:03 PM

cutest damn infestation ever.



TheMercenary  Saturday Nov 22 05:22 PM

Ugliest damm car, ever. The only one with equal ugliness, The Pacer.



limey  Saturday Nov 22 05:42 PM

I think the car's cute, too!



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Nov 22 05:47 PM

I agree, mine was red with a black stripe.



jinx  Saturday Nov 22 07:13 PM

Bruce, your gremlin #2 up there is a actually a Mogwai.... he hasn't been fed after midnight yet.



amykins  Saturday Nov 22 08:36 PM

I guess what freaks me out is the fact that their eyes are so huge... and the rest of their face is teeeny tiny. Eeeeeeeeh... And not to mention the weird 'fur'.

Or this

Oh yeah, you're right. Been 20-something years since I saw it.


ZenGum  Saturday Nov 22 09:25 PM

There are plenty of uglier cars than that, in my opinion, but naming it the "gremlin" ... as in mischievous imp that screws with the inner workings of something ... duh.

One of the pygmy tarsiers caught took a good old chomp out of the catcher's finger. Which makes me think they are smart little critters and just good at hiding.

reminds me of Leela's pet, "Nibbler"

Ok, looking at the size of the animal compaired to the hand holding it? That's one REALLY HUGE mouse! If that's the size of a "small mouse", how big are the mice in that area?

Hi, Mizzie! welcome to the cellar.

The mice in that area are GIGANTIC, that's what Mount Rorekatimbo means: Mountain of the Gigantic Mice.

The better to see you with...


SquidGirl  Sunday Nov 23 10:59 AM

Awww...the Tarsier is soo cute. In a freakish mouse kinda way. Looks so soft, too. Do they make Tarsier muffs...if so, where can I find one? Or is that considered inhumane and PETA will throw paint on me?

Yeah, especially when you make them out of both Tarsiers...

Yes, there are pygmy tarsier muffs. But only the females have them.


Cyber Wolf  Tuesday Nov 25 11:50 AM

Well there's some resounding proof that there are aliens among us... sort of... we just got the skin wrong...
