Fanged Frogs and Leopard Geckos. O and a rat of unusal size

The world is reassuringly stranger than we thought: another fanged frog has hopped into view, along with a leopard striped gecko, a tube nosed bat and a bird called the Nonggang babbler, all recently discovered in the Mekong delta in south-east Asia.


AP wrote:BANGKOK — A gecko with leopard-like spots on its body and a fanged frog that eats birds are among 163 new species discovered last year in the Mekong River region of Southeast Asia, an environmental group said Friday.


So what does NSG think? Great they found another hundred species that are endangered. I want a leopard Gecko?,etc
