Yes, that's a picture of me on the right! I'm nocturnal, which means I sleep during the day and travel and eat at night. I'm about the size of a house cat, and have a big bushy tail, ears like a bat, and teeth like a rodent. I wear my teeth down chewing very hard things like coconuts, so it's a good thing that my teeth keep growing all through my life. I'm actually a type of lemur, and I live on the island of Madagascar.

My biggest problem is that the forest I live in is being logged and cleared for agricultural purposes. That's why I'm considered an endangered species, which means if people are not careful about my home, I may not be around much longer.
