We Thought We Knew the World

With all the technology we have on hand, it’s no wonder that some humans believe that there are no more natural wonders to discover in out world.

They are wrong and a team of biologists has just proven it. A team of scientists from Britain, the United States and Papua New Guinea climbed into the deep volcanic crater of Mount Bosavi in Papua New Guinea and discovered a lost world populated by strange creatures which had never been seen before. Among their discovery are fanged frogs, grunting fish, a camouflaging gecko and kangaroos that live in trees.

The team of experts found more than 40 previously unidentified species in the pristine jungle that has grown in isolation since the volcano last erupted 200,000 years ago habitat and they hope that their finds will add weight to calls for international action against the destruction of the world’s rainforests.

No chance of that happening, but it is still a great discovery that makes you wonder what other secrets our world is hidding.
