    And I thought feeding dart frogs would be challenging.

    New Guinea still probably holds so many undiscovered wonders...that place really is the crown jewel of biodiversity.


    Anyone seen the show expedition new guinea? They discovered so many new species, two mammals(a bat and a kuskus) a giant rat, tons of moth species and others invertebrates, even a cave dwelling crab.
