A new species of legless amphibian has been discovered beneath the monsoon-soaked soils of remote northeast India.

But this legless amphibian's time in obscurity has ended, thanks to an intrepid team of biologists led by University of Delhi professor Sathyabhama Das Biju.Over five years of digging through forest beds in the rain, the team has identified an entirely new family of amphibians – called chikilidae – endemic to the region but with ancient links to Africa.

I surely hope the Indian government gives protection to this area for these wonderful and unique animals. Everytime we think we have it all figured out, nature throws us a new and wonderful inhabinant of this planet. I hope we lean more to protecting all of this major virgin habitats around the world. We must, it is our duty.

Of course, just a matter of time before rich Japanese business criminals demand that they be on the menu - goes well with whale meat.

If you want to "protect" these species, stop buying cheap Indian goods and stop patronizing businesses that outsource cheap labor to India.

Yep,,it's just not good enough. As soon as they find a new species they have it sitting behind a sewing machine making cheap goods for the West :devil:
