I love these types of stories. We keep hearing about all the lifeforms beocming endangered or extinct, and of mankinds own attempts to exterminate his neighbours from the face of the world through warfare, murder and general violence. So it's nice when something new is discovered.

Also discovering lifeforms in new ecologies is great because it just goes to show that life can survive and evolve in places that man might not think it would.

The best is when they find new mammals, as in that monkey scientists discovered in Asia earlier this year - the first one in five decades! :)

Even better was when a couple of students found a new muscle in the jaw- it's like finding a new street in Picadilly Circus.

An old rat is no longer extinct, I'll type up the details from the new edition of the Fortean Times when I remember.

Could try that with Thermidor sauce maybe?
