Over 120 new species of animal have been discovered in Borneo including a slug that fires "love darts" at its mate.
Wildlife researchers also discovered a frog with no lungs and the world's longest insect. The team has discovered on average around 3 new species a month in the Borneo rainforests.
Conservation group World Wildlife Fund (WWF) listed the new finds in a report on a remote area of dense, tropical rainforest that borders Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei on Borneo, AFP reported.
