5 New Animal Species Discovered
New Animal species are often being discovered due to seclusion, endangerment, and new breeding between two different types of species. This happens more often than you would think, and most new animals discovered are near extinction since there are so little in the wild. That's exactly why Scientists don't discover them until later. From the very bottom pits of the sea, to the rocky secluded mountains in China - we are still finding new animal species.
Our first animal is called the Macaque. It is a monkey from Arunachal Pradesh, in India. This animal is also found in Asia. First sightings were reported in 1903, although groups were not documented until 2004.
There are about 24 species lingering in Suriname and one is the Atelopus Frog discovered in the Nassau mountains. This frog is a colorful asset to the rain forest with it's fluorescent hue. Usually these species are dark black with purple patterns. Discovered in June 2007.
The Daceton armigerum is a very unusual ant. Easily seen in the Suriname forest canopy, it can make an easy meal to higher food chains. If your lucky, you might find this species in South America, Trinidad, Peru, Venezuela and French Guiana.
Jelly Fish, anyone?
