Photos Taken of 'Living Fossil' in Laos

"The first pictures showing a live specimen of a rodent species once thought to have been extinct for 11 million years have been taken by a retired Florida State University professor and a Thai wildlife biologist.

They took video and still photographs of the 'living fossil,' which looks like a small squirrel or tree shrew, in May during an expedition to central Laos near the Thai border. "
