Hi, Im Owen (a 10 year old) and I feel strongly about how people keep on slicing and dicing trees and killing the animals that depend on them. So this is just a blog talking about one of my very favorite rain forest animals: Hairy-Eared Dwarf Lemurs, Yey! This is how the status of these animals has been going in the past: They went from rare, to endangered, to critically endangered, and then back to endangered. They are so small that people thought they were extinct until 1966, when they were re-discovered with the help of a local tribe. There are still only 100 - 1000 of them left.
They have a greysh-brown body, with a greyish-white tummy, and a reddish-brown tail. Each Lemur is around 30 cm (1 foot) long, and weighs about 3 to 3.6 oz. They are one of the smallest primates in the world, and the only member of the allocebus family. They're also nocturnal. Here's a Hairy-Eare Dwarf Lemur on a youtube link. The link also involves Xeko, which is one of my favorite card games. And whenever you buy a Xeko product, they donate part of their sales to rainforest protection.
