New mammal snapped in Borneo

Snapped, but not captured, yet. Check out the tail - huge, and muscular.

The experts are scratching their pointy heads over this one - some of them think it's a marsupial, but how could a marsupial have gotten to Borneo? Another possible connection is with the lemurs of Madagascar - but Madagascar is thousands of miles away. Perhaps the strangest thing of all is that the tribe of indigenous people who live in the forest reserve where the creature was photographed have no idea what it might be. Is this a victory for the cryptozoologists?
