Are those the tiny tarsal bones of a bush baby? Because at first I thought it was two letter i's drawn on the thumbnail with a pen; and then I looked at the animal and thought "aye aye" (another name for bush baby) and it seemed like a complicated visual pun.

That is the fossil skeleton from the big toe of a 56-million-year-old tiny primate called a Carpolestes Simpsoni. They were tree-living fruit eaters.

He's cute, no?
