I’ve neglected them for the last few years, and there have been some interesting finds. I don’t mean the stuff that most people find interesting – near-complete skeletons, or discovery of rare postcranial elements.   According to scientists, the Cameroon scaly-tail is a small rodent, measuring around inches ( cm) in body and head length and weighing only to pounds ( grams).

Almost 50 years after its discovery, a cranium from the early Miocene of Rusinga Island, Kenya, is designated the type specimen for a new lorisid species in the genusMioeuoticus.

Several cranial features place this species in Lorisidae, where it may represent the sister group to living by: The Miocene (/ ˈ m aɪ. ə ˌ s iː n, ˈ m aɪ. oʊ-/ MY-ə-seen, MY-oh-) is the first geological epoch of the Neogene Period and extends from about (Ma).
