I was browsing the net looking for new discoveries, i came across a article in The Independant website about Scientist's who had discovered hundreds of new species in Remote New Guinea.Species such as Birds,Mammals,Plants,Butterflies and Frogs.

Could this be the return of extinct creatures?
Or maybe a new kind of evolution?

Quote from the article www.independent.co.uk...


Tree kangaroos, which are endangered elsewhere in New Guinea, were numerous and the team found one species entirely new to the island. The golden-mantled tree kangaroo is considered the most beautiful but also the rarest of the jungle-dwelling marsupials. There were also other marsupials, such as wallabies and mammals that have been hunted almost to extinction elsewhere. And a rare spiny anteater, the long beaked echidna, about which little is known, allowed itself to be picked up by hand. Dr Beehler said: "What was amazing was the lack of wariness of all the animals. In the wild, all species tend to be shy of humans, but that is learnt behaviour because they have encountered mankind. In Foja they did not appear to mind our presence at all.



Let's hope people stay away from these places so these animals can continue to thrive. If this place is ever inhabited, you can bet these animals will become endangered or worse, extinct.
