Hey ATS, I found a website with information about some new species of plants and animals that were discovered in Papua New Guinea this past year. It is amazing that we are still finding new species at this rate but it really does not surprise me all that much. I know there are still a huge quantity of unidentified plants and animals out there.



This pink-eyed katydid lives in the forest canopy in Papua New Guinea. It is one of the over 200 new species discovered by the Conservation International expedition to the Muller Range mountains last year. See more of the new species of frogs, ants, spiders, mammals, and plants, and videos of the expedition at Conservation International.

If you want to see more of the animals that were found and other videos and information take a look at this link.

Here are some videos of the scientists at work.
