A long thought to be extinct Moogie has been spotted and photographed in the deep jungles of Sarawak, Malaysia. This cute-but-huge mammal was last sighted in January, 1980, and was commonly believed to be extinct due to massive habitat loss and extensively hunted for its beautiful fluffy fur which fetches high prices in the fur trade. Biologists are now actively studying the remaining population level of Moogies in that area, and keeping fingers crossed to find a sustainable breeding population there.
