Aussie lost world discoveries have been made recently. Three new species were discovered in what is called the lost world of Australia. According to a report from late Monday (Oct. 28), a small patch of rain forest has been revealed as the home to at least three new species: a leaf-tail gecko, a blotched boulder-frog, and a shade skink (or lizard). That's a very impressive find for scientists, with potentially more left to be found in the area.
The scientists, doubling as explorers during this expedition, traveled to a remote mountain range on Australia's Cape York Peninsula. It is there where these new animals discovered and as seen in the video linked at the top of the article, they are pretty amazing to behold. It is discoveries such as these that continue to show that there are mysteries in the world that humans don't even know exist yet.
Photographer Tim Laman, who was working for National Geographic on this trip, stated that, "What's really exciting about this expedition is that in a place like Australia, which people think is fairly well explored, there are still places like Cape Melville where there are all these species to discover." Now these Aussie lost world discoveries can be shown to a wider audience as there will undoubtedly be a television special dedicated to it in the near future.
