The caption for the first picture reads,

"Tropical biologist Conrad Hoskin scrambles over massive boulders looking for reptiles and amphibians on the Melville Range, a small mountain range on Cape Melville, part of northeastern Australia's Cape York Peninsula (map)."

I believe that is inaccurate.  It looks to me like it should instead read, "Tropical biologist Conrad Hoskin scrambles over massive boulders trying to escape reptiles and amphibians on the Melville Range,...."

Lost World?  The world is not lost, there are just many parts of it that man has not explored and his happens to be one of them.  Of course it is exciting to explore this part of Australia and to find a couple of more species that we did not know existed. This isn't the first, nor will it be the last place humans explore and find other species. We suggest that when we write about something like this we keep it "down to earth". Does El Gabilon ever get excited about anything...yes...a cell found in red rain water that has no dna and yet is capable of growing.  It is believed to have come from outer space via a metorite. NSA did not seem inerested in investigating this but Indias government is. A cell without dna that can replacate itself...now that is very interesting especially finding out what it means to humanity.

Austrilia is an amazing land, even kangaroos are quite fantastic , because they have a bag to protect their babies.
