New Bat, Frogs Among Six Species Found in Congo

Six new animal species have been found in remote forests of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).

A two-month expedition, led by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), discovered a tiny bat (see photo below), a rodent, two shrews, and two frogs previously unknown to science.

"If we can find six new species in such a short period, it makes you wonder what else is out there," Andrew Plumptre, director of WCS's Albertine Rift Program, said in a press release.
