I don'r see how this monkey looks human.....unless you take into consideration the half lidded eyes and the slight grin on it's little hairy face.


All kidding aside, I'm really amazed at the number of "new" species "discovered" each year...especially the larger animals. There was a deer a couple of years ago, birds of course, but a "new" primate?? So I'm gonna have to ask The Stupid Questions:1) If scientists keep "finding" "new" species....how much do "we" really know about our planet? 2) if evolution is a fact then wouldn't you have to know ALL living species in order to track development?
3) If creationism is a fact, wouldn't you have to have cataloged ALL living species in order to track stablization?
4) If "we" keep discovering "new" species of animals, how can it be that scientists really have expertice on any given eco system? Such as: with the discovery of this new monkey, what impact does it have on it's eco system?

We all say "oh how wonderful!" or "how beautiful" when science unviels a "new" species of animal but we don't ask "Is it NEW or UNDISCOVERED? and with each answer please provide more information than a photo and a happy blurb relating the story of the discovery"

Jus' sayin"

This Monkey was actually discovered in the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2007.

Not Kenya as you say in the title!!

Just correcting you.

It kinda looks like a larger version of the pygmy Marmoset. Same type of fur structure and color. Interesting indeed.

Nice to see a new species discovered, as distinct from another extinct one announced, for a change.

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."


Well, that's kind of a downer to the story

Remember folks there ARE areas on this planet mankind has never been to, Foja Mountains, tons of new discoveries back in 2005.

But I'm sure there are more places untouched by humans.

1) We know less than we want to believe.
2) Evolution is not fact, but you wouldn't need to know all animals to prove it. You would just need to have evolution in progress.
3) Species is the issue. Species is a classification we use today. Creationism is saying types, or kinds of animals don't change to other types. An example would be dogs. You can create new breeds of dogs, but you won't get a koala bear by breeding dogs.
4) It's more about becoming famous and making money than anything else.
