10 New Species of National Geographic's Most Shocking Version

The following is the discovery of species - a new species during the last 20 years recorded by National Geographic as a new species of the most surprising.

1. Return of the Jedi

This fruit-tube-nosed bat is just one of about 200 species encountered during two scientific expeditions to Papua New Guinea in the year 2009-including katydid that "aims to eye" and the impression of a frog that does not mean cricket, Conservation International announced late Tuesday.
Although seen in previous expeditions, the bat has not been officially documented as a new species, or even a name. Like other fruit bats, though, it spreads the seeds from the fruit in the diet, possibly making mammals fly is important for tropical rain forest ecosystem.
In essence, an expedition to Papua New Guinea and the mountains Nakanai Muller found 24 new species of frogs, 2 new mammals, and nearly one hundred new insects. Mount the remote island nation that has produced a drop-troves of new species and is unusual in recent years-only accessible by plane, boat, foot, or helicopter.

2. Emperor of the Scorpions

(20-centimeter-long) 8-inch-long venomous arachnids that, but their venom is not harmful to people and maybe even helpful.
It contains compounds currently being tested for use in the future to combat the drug for heart disease including arrhythmia, according to Conservation International.

3. A Whisker Away From Obscurity
December 17, 2007 Mammal expert Martua Sinaga holds a 3-pound (1.4 kilogram) rat that may be new species to science. Rats were discovered in the remote Foja Mountains of western New Guinea, Indonesia, in June 2007 expedition, experts announced yesterday.
Researchers from Conservation International and Indonesian Institute of Sciences had previously found several new species of plants and animals during a trip to the original rain forest area in 2005.
When the team returned to the Fojas this summer, they found the rat along with a pygmy possum that could also be a species not previously recorded.
"This giant rat is about five times the size of a typical city rat," said Kristofer Helgen, a scientist with the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC, in a press statement. "With no fear of humans, it apparently came into the camp several times during the trip."

4. Composting "Cockroach"
Named after its inventor, the International Conservation blattodean insect was found in 2002 in a single cave in Guinea 's Simandoa Range-still the only place where this relatively unknown African cockroaches living.
Conservation International's "The mission of this new show properties that provide ecosystem services that benefit people," said Alonso, noting that blattodean is a prime example.
"People do not like cockroaches, but they provide an important service in breaking down detritus into nutrients."

5. Dinospider
Dinospiders Atewa is part of the arachnid lineage that was almost unchanged at 300 million years before dinosaurs walked the Earth.
Eat in small termite and ant larvae, crablike creature lives in Ghana Atewa Range Forest Reserve, where this species was found in 2006. At only 0.4 inches (11 mm) wide, dinospider Atewa largest surviving member of a small group of 57 species known.

6. Do-Gooding Dragon
The eliseva Platycypha dragonflies may live around the Congo River Basin where the new species discovered in 2004. If so, they tend to African waters in good health.
The dragonfly is a key indicator of water quality, because his seed, water nymphs, have populations of other insects and water creatures to feed.
Dragonflies also keep the mosquito population in check by feeding on pests as adults-and even as larvae

7.Sticking Points
Departure from the Cambodian jungle, this great fishing (0.6-inch-long/1.5-centimeter-long) penetrate ant predator with a curved spines, which also can form a kind of home-security system.
"When they get disturbed, they will surround the bully, and form a connection, so that they form a kind of formation, defensive mat on top of the nest. It can be effective, although perhaps not intentional," said Alonso.

8. Follow Your Nose
In a twist on the usual story, this is really a new species discovered by Conservation International, not vice versa. The so-called frog-so Pinocchio appeared on bags of rice in the RAP expedition camp in Indonesia 's remote Foja Mountains in 2008.
long nose protrusion, frog standing upright when the man called but deflates and hangs down over the active period. Scientists are still sorting purposes of frill unusual.

9.The Better to See You With
This frog (15-centimeter-long) tree 6-inch-long big eyes to boot-it is better to survey the high desert in Papua New Guinea, where the new species was found in 2008 beside a mountain stream.
Like other species of the genus Nyctimystes, newly discovered frog spawn under a clear stone, running waters. Once the tadpoles hatch, they use a mouth like a big suction to attach themselves to rocky streambed and grazing without drifting.

10.Heavyweight Chomp
Range feet almost a foot (30 cm) and tipping the scales at some 6 ounces (170 grams), Guyana goliath 'bird-eating spider s is a species of spider in the world's toughest. (See video from the biggest spider in the world.)
Despite their name, this South American rainforest villagers feast mostly on small invertebrates, although they have been known to overcome the cost of the larger such as lizards and snakes. These spiders also provides a venomous fangs-not deadly to humans, and the covering of small, stinging hair, where the animals can be released on the type of clouds to block the attack.
