Over the past decade, biologists have been exhaustively searching throughout the Mekon Delta region of Southeast Asia, and have been finding undocumented species by the hundreds! Well over a thousand species new to science have been found. Some of these are very odd indeed, and some were thought long-extinct, like the Laotian Rock Rat pictured below which was believed extinct for the past 11 million years!
Here are a few of the new species. The pink millipede is called the Dragon Millipede, and produces vast amounts of cyanide.
