The world is full of animals that have yet to be discovered. These animals range from microscopic organisms to insects, birds, lemurs, oxen, deer and even a new species of whale! All of these animals have been around even longer than we have. But they may not be on this earth for much longer. And yet there may be millions of animals left on earth that have not been discovered, described and named. Zoologist Ronald Orenstein tracks the most recent animal discoveries and explains how they were discovered, talks about the scientists who discovered them and even shows how to catalogue a new discovery so that others can share in the scientific process. Filled with exciting photographs of never-before seen animals, New Animal Discoveries is a fascinating look at the very fascinating world of exploratory zoology. Travel through the jungles of South-east Asia and discover a "lost world" of new animals, such as the enigmatic saola, meet the cyanide-eating golden bamboo lemur of Madagascar, or sail the Pacific in search of three new species of whale. New Animal Discoveries offers children an exciting and engaging look at the good-news stories of ecological discovery. It also very wisely brings up important animal-endangerment and habitat survival issues.
