This lovely animal lived 47 million years ago in the Eocene era when the earth was covered in a steamy rain forest from pole to pole. It looked very close to a lemur but it had opposable thumbs and fingernails rather then claws.
Only one fossil has ever been found and it was found in Germany. It was a nine month old juvenile female which was 95% intact. The fossil included some fur and skin, even some stomach contents. It seems she ate seeds, leaves and fruits. They named her Ida.
This is my portrait of Ida as I imagine her to be curious, playful and bright.
Thank you so much for you kind comments and favorites on my last picture "Farm in Autumn"
