Top 10 new species of 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4.8 (4 votes)

The International Institute for Species Exploration at Arizona State University has released a list of the top 10 species discovered in 2009.

The list is taken from the 20 000 newly discovered species that are found each year and includes such organisms as a plant that eats rats and a fish with vampire fangs. It is a good start if you want to learn about the variety of living things in the world, and how little about them we know, or even if you just want to create a unique fursona.

The killer sponge took me off guard. Good thing it's only about 100 micrometers high.

Somehow I don't think conventions would be pleased to have Phallus drewesii fursuiters running around . . .

Killer Sponge?

Okay why does that sound like a bad Sci-fi Channel movie?

a student and Growlithe from South Africa/Austria, interested in science, writing, pokemon and gaming

I'm a South African fur, born and raised in Cape Town, but currently living in Vienna, Austria for work and studies. I'm interested in science, writing, gaming, all sorts of furry stuff, Pokemon and some naughtier things too! I've dabbled in art before but mostly like writing although I haven't done very many stories recently but more non-fiction on Flayrah. I also helped found and administer the ZA Fur forum.
