Greetings, New Species

Posted By on Thu, May 24, 2012 at 10:00 AM

What do a millipede, a sneezing monkey and a blue tarantula have in common?

Well, not much really. Except for the fact that they're in the latest top 10 list of new species.

The list was published for the fifth year yesterday by the International Institute for Species Exploration at Arizona State University. The date coincides with the birthday of Carl Linnaeus, a botanist famous for the creation of the modern system of naming and classifying living creatures.

With more and more species becoming extinct and endangered every year, it's nice to know that there are still critters out there waiting to be discovered.

To see the complete list, visit: http://species.asu.edu/Top10
