Zenkerella, the world’s most mysterious mammal finally found

Zenkerella, mysterious mammalThe second male specimen of Zenkerella insignis was found near the village of Ureca on Bioko, an island off the west coast of Africa.
The specimen sat in alcohol at the bottom of an opaque plastic container. Its luxuriant black fur was dark and matted, its characteristic tail curled.

David Fernandez peered at the odd-looking critter, which he’d spent the better part of the past year trying to track down, and hoped it was the real thing.
