Sigh. They found an undiscovered place, and the first thing they thought was "Let's go there and look around!"

It doesn't matter if they protect it from future expeditions. It is no longer an untouched place. Nothing they do will ever change that. The butterfly effect doesn't just apply to movies about time travel.

Sometimes I just think that mankind is the worst thing that ever happened to itself.

Those are very interesting animals. The 'snake' thing is pretty sick looking. good find

Great find! Must admit, Mozambique being our neighbours here in South Africa, my first thoughts were... I want to go and see for myself before it gets spoiled, but then I realised that if everybody thought that way, it will be destroyed before i even get there.

I am sad to say that some South Africans have a bad reputation when it comes to off-roading in neighboring countries. Most off-road clubs and societies try their best to educate members, but you get the guys that just don't care.

Before anybody gets too worried, I doubt it will attract too many visitors too soon. Mozambique is still one of the countries with the most landmines left behind from the last war. Everybody knows that you keep to the main roads in the more rural areas, else you might just get blown up. Lots of headway has been made to remove the old landmines (it kills and maims lots of the rural people), but maybe around that area we should ask them not to clear the landmines... most of the animals they discovered are too small and light to easilly trigger the mines, and the mines will help to protect the forrest :-)

Very cool discoveries and pictures, though the first snake seems to be a puff adder, or a very close relative.

A hand holding the bird kinda defeats what you just said.

Oh great, another safe place for humans to rape and destroy...
I feel sorry for the life there already...

Interesting pics.

I keep having weird dreams about new species of animals but none of them look like this.

Great pics and nice find.

I almost wish it was never found though. Now people will study the area, more will come to sell supplies, then more will move there, tourism, etc...

BTW I love the design on that beetle. Cool stuff.

my first thought was the same

if only there was more land untouched by human hands and greed, lets hope this place remains untouched, seeing how it's the last place man hasnt ruined...yet

I feel the same way about poop-mutants.

20 years it wuill become a barren wasteland with the animals in cages

It makes you wonder what else lies hidden in the world, what about the valleys that can't be seen from the air due to huge cliffs covering it.

Maybe we'll find something deeply day

Great images, those are some crazy-looking animals.

I hope that the area becomes protected from too much tourism, and loggers and poachers are kept out.

It would be good if the scientists would at least have enough time to catalogue all the creatures in this area before it gets overrun.

F'd & the S.

National Geographic just had an article last month about the Foja Mountains of Indonesia. Apparently there are still many unclassified species being discovered there.

I recommend picking up the magazine, but here's a link the an article that discusses the discoveries:

Lost World

The golden-mantled tree kangaroo is just one of dozens of species discovered in late 2005 by a team of Indonesian, Australian, and U.S. scientists on the island of New Guinea.

They promise to be careful

it is a type of viper, it's in one of the articles linked, but I can't remember which one.

nasty looking booger, eh?

I wonder how one would go about preparing these new morsals to our kingdom. I would start with butter on the snake meat and cameleon and the brid?? Fried rice on the side. Thanks for this post they look absolutely delicious. Always good to find new food to try.

WOW, this is great news but now that it's known people will be in there fast and kill everything, I bet BP will fly over it and pump out lots of thick black oil to kill everything and set it on fire.
