New Species Discovered in Indonesia

New Species Discovered in Indonesia

"Lost World" Found in Indonesia Is Trove of New Species"
"It really was like crossing some sort of time warp into a place that people hadn't been to," said Bruce Beehler of the wildlife expedition he co-led in December into the isolated Foja Mountains on the tropical South Pacific island of New Guinea.

During a 15-day stay at a camp they had cut out of the jungle, the conservationists found a trove of animals never before documented, from a new species of the honeyeater bird to more than 20 new species of frogs.

"We were like kids in a candy store," said Beehler, a bird expert with Conservation International in Washington, D.C. "Everywhere we looked we saw amazing things we had never seen before."


Here's a small photo gallery.

I like the chicken-crow the best, but the fuzzy tree kangaroo is the cutest. Thanks for blogrolling me! I'll be reciprocating soon ...
