New creature found
A catlike creature photographed by camera traps on Borneo Island is likely to be a new species of carnivore.
If confirmed, the animal would be the first new carnivore species discovered on the island since 1895.
They have twice captured images of the animal with "camera traps".
Since 1994, researchers have found more than 360 new species on Borneo island, most of them insects and plants.
I guess we don't know every creature that is out there. It does make me wonder though, how many pictures of Bigfoot and Nessie do they have to have to call it a new species?
Just a thought.
