How cute and "human" like this little guy looks!!! I cant believe there are still species out there like this that have yet to be discovered. Is it just me or can you just see the emotion in his eyes? Just a little break from the daily grind. We nowreturn you to your regularly scheduled conspiracy theories.


n an age where so much of the earth's surface has been photographed, digitized, and placed on a searchable map on the web discoveries like this one by a group of American scientists this seem a throwback to another time. "We never expected to find a new species there," says John Hart, the lead scientist of the project, "but the Lomami basin is a very large block that has had very little exploration by biologists."

It's crazy to think there are still mammals being discovered to this day. It does almost look like a human in the face.

Now just imagine what kind of creatures have yet to be discovered in the oceans.

Definitely not the newest monkey to be discovered in 28 years, unless they only mean in Kenya. See my signature for good time.

(the not so adorable)
Sneezing Snub-Nosed Monkey


A new monkey species in Myanmar is so snub-nosed that rainfall is said to makes it sneeze—but that's apparently the least of its problems, conservationists announced in October.

The only scientifically observed specimen (pictured) had been killed by local hunters the time researchers found it—and was eaten soon after.




and the other not so adorable...

Maybe they did just mean Kenya, not sure now lol.
Awesome thread in your signature by the way! I kind of think the second monkey you presented is still cute but it's very hard to get me to admit that any animal isn't at least cute


LOL and I love the "yoda bat"

I remember the thread about the snub nosed monkey discovered recently! He is definitely a unique looking one! Was a lot more recent than 28 years ago though you are right about that!

This monkey is claimed to have been captured and eaten by local hunters as well, according to the last bit of the op's article.


And what of the first Lesula they found -- Georgette's pet. After he saw the pictures, Hart regularly sent a team to keep track of the young Lesula's progress. At some point Georgette let the monkey roam free. "It seems someone captured it," says Hart, "it probably ended up in the cooking pot."
