From a devilish-looking bat to a frog that sings like a bird, scientists have identified 126 new species in the Greater Mekong area, the WWF said in a new report detailing discoveries in 2011. But threats to the region's biodiversity mean many of the new species are already struggling to survive, the conservation group warned. "The good news is new discoveries. The bad news is that it is getting harder and harder in the world of conservation and environmental sustainability," Nick Cox, manager of WWF-Greater Mekong's Species Programme, said.

I find it weird that the World Wrestling Federation sends people out to look for these things.
Top one looks like a coney island white fish
Is there a Ping List for this type of stuff?......................
World Wrestling Federation changed their name..............They are now World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc.................
The two-legged lizard . . . I know, she works upstairs in the White House.
Well, at least it’s not a Fire Island white fish...................
I don’t like spiders and sneks. That green snek is crazy looking.
LMAO good one boss!
When I read the title, I was expecting a picture of Nobama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi walking together......
Pit Viper, very dangerous. Looks evil...................

BLA BA BLA BA BLA BA BLA BA BLA!
Crikey, a blooming two legged lizard 6.
You’ve got the picture right. And she’s full of guano too.
Cryptobiology... there used to be, then the pingmeister left in disgust (perhaps four, or maybe even five, years ago), turned over the list to someone else who quickly lost interest. I’ve occasionally added a CB topic to GGG, if there’s some kind of paleontological or primatology angle.
those three are still undefined species under the genus Idiotus Politicii
Why does everyone associate bats with "the devil?" Because they fly at night? So do owls and whippoorwills. Because of Bram Stoker? Where are all the animal rights crazies and their charge of "speciesism" when it comes to bats?
Sorry. I used to be a member of Bat Conservation International and am an avid chiropterophile.
Now does this look like a "devil" to you???
See my posts 20 and 21. And no comments about that dreadful pony episode, please.
We love bats here in Florida. People put up ‘bat houses’ like others do bird houses. Bats eat mosquitoes. We love anything that eats mosquitoes, especially bats and dragonflies......................Dragonflies eat them as both adults and in their larval stage in the water!.................
I had a bat house on the east side of the home we moved from three years ago. And not a little one . . . it was supposed to be a "nursery" house for females to raise their pups. Unfortunately, I don't think a single bat ever lived in it. The wasps took it over.
