Sunday Buffet: Zoological Finds

Top Ten lists:

From Arizona State University - Top 10 new species from 2012.  Plants and animals, including a giant millipede and a blue tarantula.  A little different from the usual mammal-centric lists.

From, the Weirdest 10 Animal Discoveres of 2012.  Bizarre ancient animals, a lmur practicing cannibalism, the awesome Pliosaurus funkei, a fish that carries ite penis on its head - C'mon, how much weirder could you want?

The Top 10 from Popular Science includes the weird-nosed "sneezing monkey" from Myanmar (Rhinopithecus strykeri was popular on Top 10 lists), and Tamoya ohboya
