Wow, these animals are beautiful and amazing. The fact that three species considered extinct were re-discovered as part of this study is amazing! As these are all found in extremely protected areas it is crucial that we all work to maintin this protection!

Clever little darlings, they thought a couple were extinct. Good, hope they keep hiding.

WE HAVE SO MUCH STILL TO DISCOVER!!!! I'm convinced!!!
But MEN BEHAVE AS IF THIS EARTH IS ONE OF THEIR "SPARE PARTS"; AS IF GENERATIONS TO COME MIGHT HAVE ANOTHER "EARTH" TO GO AND LIVE ON!!!!
WE STILL HAVE TO DISCOVER A LOT ABOUT THE MYSTERIOUS OCEAN LIFE!!!!!!!! BUT WE ARE DESTROYING IT IN THE MEANTIME!!!
IT IS THE SAME WITH RAIN FORESTS: SCIENTISTS SAY WE KNOW ONLY 3% OF THE FLORA (Plants) & FAUNA (Animals) OF RAINFORESTS BUT WE ARE DESTROYING THEM CONTINUOUSLY!!!!
There MIGHT BE A CURE for CANCER or AIDS in the PLANTS WE DO NOT KNOW YET, BUT WE ARE GETTING RID OF THESE OPPORTUNITIES, JUST BECAUSE OF MONEY & GREED!!!!!!! ILLEGAL LOGGING/ PALM OIL PLANTATIONS/ POACHING, BUSHMEAT, etc !!!

Can we please leave these animals alone. Interference by humans is never a good thing for the animals.

I read about this in my Sunday paper and thought it was very fascinating. It's always fun to hear about new species being discovered. Sort of gives on hope for the future of this planet. Thanks.
