That is absolutely wild! Lets just hope the bad eggs don't decide to start hunting these rare species.

Photos!!!!

Here are new pictures of some of the new species!!!

A long-beaked echidna (Zaglossus bruijni)




golden-mantled tree kangaroo (Dendrolagus goodfellowi pulcherrimus), an arboreal jungle-dweller, had been hunted to near-extinction.



This tree frog is believed to be one of 20 new frog species discovered on the expedition.

This undescribed species of microhylid frog (Choerophryne sp.) discovered on the expedition is less than a half-inch long.

An undescribed species (Callulops sp.) was discovered during the expedition to the Foja Mountains in Indonesia's easternmost Papua province.

A golden-fronted bowerbird (Amblyornis flavifrons) is seen on the Rapid Assessment Program expedition to the Foja Mountains in Indonesia's easternmost Papua province in December 2005. Members of the expedition said Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2006, that scientists had discovered a "Lost World" in an isolated Indonesian jungle. They were able to identify dozens of new species of frogs, butterflies and plants -- as well as large mammals hunted to near-extinction elsewhere.
(Bruce Beehler, Conservation International/AP Photo)



Scientists took the first-known photographs of the six-wired bird of paradise, a bird described by hunters in New Guinea in the 19th century and named for the wires that extend from its head in place of a crest. It was previously thought to have been hunted to extinction.

I am so happy that these rare and beautiful animals have a chance to survive now. There are so many species out there that we do not know about. Some of the rare plant life could hold the cure for all the sickness and disease in the world. We should protect the environment as much as possible.

BTW, beautiful pics

What why would the "intelligent designer" put marsupials and monotremes on New Guinea?
