Turkish scientists find 21 new aquatic species

As a reminder that discoveries are made all over the world, this account covers a fish a cave shrimp, and 19 other animals described by the Water Products Faculty at Ege University in Turkey. According to Dr. Özdemir Egemen, "I believe there are many other species waiting to be discovered. Our country is among an elite few countries in terms of richness in underwater life.”

COMMENT: I do wonder about the translation at one point in this story. It says they found "seven aquatic reptiles." Turtles, perhaps, or maybe it meant "amphibians?"
