Top 10 New Species

The International Institute for Species Exploration recently published a list of the top 10 species discovered in 2007. National Geographic has posted a gallery with photographs of all ten. No birds are represented, but the photos are still interesting because they show the tremendous amount of biodiversity that is still being discovered. The photo above is a Shocking Pink Millipede (Desmoxytes purpurosea), found in Thailand.
