Hundreds of New Species Found in Eastern Himalayas

A new report on wildlife in the Eastern Himalayas says researchers in the area have discovered more than 200 new species, including "walking" fish and a  “sneezing monkey" in the last 6 years.

The findings, made in Nepal, Bhutan, the far north of Myanmar, southern Tibet and north-eastern India, were published by the World Wildlife Fund.

They include the lance-headed pit viper, notable for its orange red and yellow coloring, and a remarkable blue-eyed frog.

Scientists also found a new species of monkey in the remote forests of northern Myanmar after being told by locals that it was most easily found when it rains because it is prone to sneezing.

In total 133 plants, 39 invertebrates, 26 fish, 10 amphibians, one reptile, one bird and one mammal have been discovered in the area over the past 6 years.

The report describes the newly-discovered species as  "amazing" gifts of nature but warned that more needs to be done to protect wildlife in the region.

“Discovery of these new species reaffirms the need to strengthen conservation of freshwater ecosystems and maintain connectivity to sustainably manage our unique diversity,” says Dr. Dhan Bahadur Gurung from Bhutan’s College of Natural Resources.........more photos........http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2015/10/hundreds-species-eastern-himalayas-151006090111637.html
