However the population has decreased and the government decided to keep them isolated and touching them was strictly forbidden. It was said that touching these little fellows will shorten their life span. I'm glad they're preserving and avoiding its extinction.

The have the size of a small rat with big belly and an eyes of an owl but more glassy and radiant. They're really adorable that you just want to take care of it and place a rainbow umbrella above it.

Reminders: Flash Photography is strictly prohibited. We don't want to disturb this cute fellas, they're actually nocturnal creatures so don't be confused if they look so sleepy.
