Widely believed to have been extinct, the pygmy tarsier, one of the world’s smallest and rarest primates, has been found on a mountain-top on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. Until now, scientists had not seen a pygmy tarsier alive since 1921.

Scientists used nets to trap two male and one female mouse-sized pygmy tarsier in order to place radio collars around their necks to track their movements.

These cute, furry, nocturnal creatures weigh just 2 ounces (50 grams), and have been described as looking a lot like Gremlins.
