I came across an article today that scientists have found a "lost world" in a dormant volcano in New Guinea. They climbed down a kilo-meter deep crater and discovered over 40 previously unidentified species living in the remote rain forest. Some of the new species includes; a camouflaged gecko, a fanged frog and a fish called the Henamo grunter, named because it makes grunting noises from its swim bladder, a new rat that may be the biggest rat in the world. It always amazes me to see that there are still some natural mysteries in this world. I absolutely love seeing places that mankind has not destroyed, nor inhabit.
