Dec 15, 2008: Mekong Youjane





The Greater Mekon River region yields over 1,000 new species in the last decade.

Quote:
BANGKOK (AFP) – Scientists have discovered more than 1,000 species in Southeast Asia's Greater Mekong region in the past decade, including a spider as big as a dinner plate, the World Wildlife Fund said Monday.
A rat thought to have become extinct 11 million years ago and a cyanide-laced, shocking pink millipede were among creatures found in what the group called a "biological treasure trove".
The species were all found in the rainforests and wetlands along the Mekong River, which flows through Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam and the southern Chinese province of Yunnan.

I thought we killed all of that with the Agent Orange ... or are these the mutations we were warned about?

Ok. a cyanide laced shocking pink millipede counts as a "treasure trove"? What does that make me then?

A shocking pink cyanide laced humanoid.


ZenGum  Monday Dec 15 06:09 PM

Oh great, I've been eating cyanide-laced humanoid ice-cream for the last 8 weeks. You guys could have told me.



Cloud  Monday Dec 15 06:14 PM

a spider the size f a dinner plate?

uh . . . NO!



Diaphone Jim  Monday Dec 15 07:38 PM

Youjane: A thousand pardons. It hit me an hour or two later.
Youfay or Youann would have hit sooner.
The Mekong area in 1966 had nasty ants and scorpions and the rubber plantations had huge spiders just at eye level.



hipshot  Monday Dec 15 10:09 PM

That pit viper just oozes attitude. I'm pretty sure he's flaring his nostrils at me!



sweetwater  Tuesday Dec 16 11:24 AM

The snake's color is so rich, its pattern simple and elegant. Quite beautiful, even if it does seem to be considering recipes for human. But the millipedes are the color of slobbered-on cotton candy. Interesting critters, but I'm grateful these are still images and not movies. ::shudders::



SquidGirl  Tuesday Dec 16 04:54 PM

There is something I like about being alive during the discovery of new species.



Gravdigr  Tuesday Dec 16 07:56 PM

Concerning the snake: I think a hand grenade would do wonders for him. The red of his guts strewn about combined with the green of his scales, very christmassy.

Have you ever looked at this creature like this :

eyes = horns
nostrils = eyes
mouth = mouth



What you see NOW?

...no wonder why this creature is a symbol of (D)evil...
