Dunk him in my Coffee
The mouse lemur is the smallest lemur, and I recently learned that it is very important in the pollination of the baobab tree. It eats the moths which are the base pollinator, but in eating them, gets covered with the pollen they have already collected, and spreads it to the next flower. The baobab itself is a wonder - its' flowers open in less than a minute in the night. I think I saw all of this on Planet Earth - anyone else see it?
