WASHINGTON (AP) Our world is a much wilder place than it looks. A new study estimates that Earth has almost 8.8 million species, but we've only discovered about a quarter of them. And some of yet-to-be-seen ones could be in our own backyards, scientists say.
So far, only 1.9 million species have been found. Recent discoveries have been small and weird: a psychedelic frogfish, a lizard the size of a dime and even a blind hairy mini-lobster at the bottom of the ocean.

love this hairy lobster...
and yes, there could very well be a Big Foot, Sasquash,Himalayan Monster,,,etc
Wow, that is the most unique lobster that I've seen so far. I hate hearing that there is no final frontier left on earth when we keep finding new species all the time. There is so much left to explore. The amazon pumps out new species daily it seems.
That is a scary looking lobster. Hopefully it is not as contagious as the Bed Bugs who have come and spread like wildfire all over North America.
