Burrunan dolphin (Tursiops australis)
Every year scientists describe thousands of species for the first time. 2011 was an amazing year. Here is a look at some of the significant new species discoveries for the year. A Xenophyophore is a one celled-organism the size of a mango, very big of this kind of thing! Some other species discovered include a “SpongeBob” mushroom in Borneo, a long-tongued bee, new mice in the Philippines, seabirds, several bats, a new monkey species and even a dolphin off the coast of Australia! Imagine discovering a species the size of a dolphin- what more do we not know!
