Wildlife experts have been able to discover a total of about 200 species in the fragile eastern Himalayas ranging from monkeys to fish to snakes.
A new report by The World Wildlife Fund said that a range of new species have been found in Nepal, Bhutan, the far north of Myanmarsouthern Tibet and north-eastern India. The discoveries includes some very interesting creatures like a monkey that starts sneezing when it rains, a walking fish and a snake that appears to be a jewel. The WWF said that these discoveries were made during the previous five years and includes 133 plants, 26 species of fish, 10 new amphibians, one reptile, one bird and one mammal.
The report said, "Some of the most striking discoveries include a vibrant blue dwarf 'walking' snakehead fish, which can breathe atmospheric air and survive on land for up to four days, although moving in a manner much clumsier than a slithering snake.The report details an unfortunate monkey whose upturned nose leads to a sneeze every time the rain falls, and a living gem - the bejeweled lance-headed pit viper, which could pass as a carefully crafted piece of jewellery."
Heather Sohl, WWF-UK's chief adviser of species said that the discoveries show that there is a lot to learn about species that live on the planet.Sohl pointed out that experts discovered 211 new species in the region, which is one of the most biodiverse regions in the world.
