A new Top 10 New Species

And the top 10 from 2010 include... (drum roll)...

Walker's dukier - this deer from Weat Africa is the largest mammal species discovered last year. But as I never stop pointing out, there ARE new mammals every year, and not all of them are little rodents...

The rogue mushroon - the first mushroom known to "fruit" underwater.

The Sierra Madre Forest monitor - at 10 kg, this Philippine lizatrd is the largest reptile discovered.
