"Archicebus likely bounced and climbed around the canopy, being entirely arboreal, looking for food items out on the terminal branches of trees. It had incredibly long legs and was an adept leaper."

Cute li'l feller.
Don't mind at all, having him/her for an Ancestor.

This sort of stuff is fascinating!

Fascinating. Jamie Clemons, the cat that owns me plans on global domination next week. She expect your utter devotion and that of all humans. She will even force the Mayor of Toronto to resign.
