        A pancake-shaped batfish, a leech with titanic teeth found inside a human's nose and an iron-eating bacterium snagged spots on the New Species list...whoa!
        New species come from around the world, including Brazil, the Gulf of Mexico, the Mascarene Islands in the Indian Ocean, Madagascar, the North Atlantic Ocean, Oregon, Peru, the Philippines, South Africa and West Africa.

        Here are some I find them quiet strange but at the same time extraordinary.

        * Pancake Batfish (Halieutichthys intermedius) Common name: The Louisiana Pancake Batfish.
        a pancake batfish that lives in waters either partially or fully encompassed by the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
        Named Halieutichthys intermedius, this bottom-dwelling species seems to hop on its thick, arm-like fins as it moves awkwardly in the water, resembling a walking bat.



        Leech (Tyrannobdella rex)-a leech, less than 2 inches in length but with a single jaw and gigantic teeth, earning it the name Tyrannobdella rex, which means 'tyrant leech king.' Found in Peru, this leech was discovered attached to the nasal mucous membrane of a human.
        According to the scientists who reported the discovery, there are 600 to 700 species of described leeches, yet there could be as many as 10,000 more throughout the world.



        Pollinating Cricket (Glomeremus orchidopilus)-a raspy cricket – the only pollinator of the rare and endangered orchid Angraecum cadetii on Réunion in the Mascarene Archipelago in the Indian Ocean.
        The scientists who made the discovery wrote that this species, which belongs to a subfamily of crickets that make a raspy sound, represents the first supported case of regular pollination by an insect from the order Orthoptera in extant flowering plants



        Monitor Lizard (Varanus bitatawa) Common name: Sierra Madre Forest Monitor or Golden Spotted Monitor.-At 6 feet 6 inches in length, a frugivorous (fruit-eating) monitor lizard found in the Northern Sierra Madre Forest on Luzon Island in the Philippines is the longest species.
        Weighing only 22 pounds, this species is brightly colored with stripes of gold flecks.
        Its scaly body and legs are a blue-black mottled with pale yellow-green dots and its tail is marked in alternating segments of black and green.
        Named Varanus bitatawa, this lizard spends most of its time in trees and has become a flagship species for conservation in the Philippines.



        Charles Darwin -an orb-weaving spider from Madagascar that was named for Charles Darwin – Caerostris darwini. The webs of Darwin's Bark Spider have been found spanning rivers, streams and lakes, and in one instance, a web stretched 82 feet across a Madagascar river with at least 30 insects trapped in it. But length of the web isn't the only distinction of this species. The silk spun by these spiders is more than two times stronger than any other known spider silk and reportedly 10 times stronger than a similarly sized piece of Kevlar.



        Jumping Cockroach (Saltoblattella montistabularis) Common name: Leaproach.   :'$-The Silvermine Nature Reserve, part of Table Mountain National Park in South Africa, is home to a new species of cockroach that exhibits unusual morphology with legs that are highly modified for jumping.
        Named Saltoblattella montistabularis – Saltoblattella is the Latin translation of 'jumping small cockroach' – this critter has jumping ability that is on par with grasshoppers.
        Prior to its discovery, jumping cockroaches were only known from the Late Jurassic.
        In addition to the leg modifications, it has hemispherical shaped eyes, rather than kidney shaped eyes, which protrude from the sides of the head, and its antennae have an additional fixation point to help stabilize it during jumping.

          Spooky but interesting - but as for the nasal leech, it just makes me shudder.
          Thanks Nan.

            The other day I was cleaning BBQ grill before cooking I had to take the cover off and my daughter screamed at me purified...one of the biggest black widows was right next my right shoulder  I was jumping like a maniac while smashing it with broom stick and almost wet my pants... ...I don't know which one I am more scared of...them or my mother in law.

            Nan, you crack me up!  What a picture!  IMO you should fear the M-I-L a lot more than the black widow... at least the spider knows to crawl away and hide in a dark place...
