Thanks for sharing these amazing discoveries...not really into the reptiles and fish. Am not a firend of spiders, but have to say an eyeless one is fascinating.

Thanks for sharing I have to admit as a real arachnophobe I had a real problem with the spider but they are all beautiful.

How fascinating! The leaf nosed bat is insane! Imagine how many more diverse species are out there waiting to be discovered! And hopefully respected and protected when we do!! Thank you Cher, very cool

thanks Cher, but they may disappear soon since there will be many many dams along Mekong. recently things have been changed dramatically from dams upstream, yet many others to come. I can't imagine what's next!

Beautiful photos of unique animals and plants. Though knowing that these are pictures of newly discovered species always makes me fearful this is the fist and the last time we get to see these animals and plants.
