Near Newfoundland, where they discovered this guy last year:
From Nat'l Geo's 10 Weirdest Animals of 2010. I also like the Yoda Bat:
It's been a good couple of years for new species discovery, even mammals, even fairly large mammals, but I'm not sure what to make of this dude:
Cryptozoologists everywhere must be rejoicing. Whenever a big and new animal is discovered it offers hope -- and proof! -- of the possibility that sasquatch/yeti/orang pendek/et. al. are still out there, lurking in the forests, cunning enough to remain undetected for all these years. But I don't know about the snub nosed monkey. That's the only specimen ever recorded (and it was eaten immediately thereafter), and it even looks like the fakeries of explorational yesteryear, when taxidermy chimeras where brought back form places mysterious proving the existence of this or that mythical creature. So don't get your hopes up. Besides: why not be satisfied with the truly new species? You don't need to hold a torch with sasquatch when you have an adorable purple cartoon octopus friend from the deep!
