Three new species of world's smallest primate ( world's smallest lemur ) :
Deep in the forests of Madagascar German scientists have discovered three new species of the world's smallest primate, the Mouse lemur. But the habitat these tiny creatures call home is now being threatened by mass deforestation. Three years have passed since three new species of mouse lemur :
Microcebus danfossi and
were discovered by German scientists in the forests of Madagascar.
Nevertheless, a lot of time can pass before an animal species is officially " baptized " with a scientific name. The road to obtaining an official Latin name is a long one -- filled with pitfalls and hurdles that involve a painstaking research process into the new species that ends with a peer-reviewed study published in a scientific journal. Only after other scientists review the research, corrections are made and it is successfully defended can the scientific baptism finally be completed. ( Tonia Sorrentino - 2006 )
