Photo: "Lost World" Found in Indonesia Is Trove of New Species



During a December 2005 expedition in Indonesia's Foja Mountains, a researcher cradles a golden-mantled tree kangaroo, the first such tree kangaroo ever spotted in Indonesia.

Other animals found during the expedition are even rarer. The scientists documented dozens of new bird, frog, and insect species.
