"Hundreds of new species" discovered

Scientists have discovered all sorts of new critters in New Guinea.

Among the new species of birds, frogs, butterflies and palms discovered in the expedition through this pristine environment, untouched by man, was the spectacular Berlepsch's six-wired bird of paradise. The scientists are the first outsiders to see it. They could only reach the remote mountainous area by helicopter, which they described it as akin to finding a "Garden of Eden". [source]

Word is that several groups of Americans are already planning hunting trips based on reports that many of the new species "taste like chicken".

Its refreshing and fascinating to consider that we are still discovering God's creation. I'm especially intrigued by these creatures lack of fear of human beings. Its a tangible reminder of the unity of God's creation that was meant as the original design.
