Amazing creatures and fabulous photos. Though i do enjoy seeing these new animal species but i often worry with new species out comes the greed,poachers,trophy hunters, and just plain hunting these to extinction. Sometimes i think scientists should not disclose their findings to the general population. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Thanks so much, Tamara! Beautiful animals. Although I'm scared silly of spiders, the pictures I've seen of the newly discovered taratulas are breathtaking.
