Stunning New Beasts

Are you tired of the world's current lineup of fauna, with its appalling lack of tauntauns, bigfeet, jackelopes, and leprechauns? I can't do anything about the tauntauns, bigfeet, jackelopes, or leprechauns, but I can offer you the chance to look at an amazing gallery of amazing new-to-us beasties recently discovered in Southeast Asia.

This millipede is just one of the new creatures -- there's also a gigantic new spider, a new pit viper, and a new type of rabbit.

I would not want to find one of these climbing my bedroom wall; although, to be fair, its color is a nice change from the usual brownish black ones lurking around in my bathroom. But still.
