Garden of Eden
AUSAUSTRALIAN and other scientists have found a "lost world" in a remote Indonesian mountain jungle.
The tract of remote forest is home to exotic species of birds, butterflies, frogs and plants as well as mammals unafraid of humans, whom they have never seen.
"It's as close to the Garden of Eden as you're going to find on Earth," said Bruce Beehler, co-leader of the US, Indonesian and Australian expedition to part of the cloud-shrouded Foja mountains in the province of Papua that covers the western half of Papua New Guinea.
I wonder if they will tell us if they find any dinosaurs or any things that were supposed to evolved higher forms?
Still it is pretty cool that they could find some place like that today.
There is still much that we do not know about our planet.
