    Cool Article: New species discovered in Indonesia jungle

    Cool!

    Hopefully oil won't be discovered there as well!

    And pics: http://www.usatoday.com/tech/gallery...2/07/flash.htm

    Story Lead-in:
    JAKARTA, Indonesia Scientists exploring an isolated jungle in one of Indonesia's most remote provinces discovered dozens of new species of frogs, butterflies and plants, as well as mammals hunted to near extinction elsewhere, members of the expedition said Tuesday.
    I wonder how many other areas are like that in our world?!? Amazing!
