Monkey Facts: New Monkey Discovered

September 13, 2012

I was very excited to read the article: New Monkey Discovered by David McKenzie, CNN

As you know I love monkeys! and I am always looking forward to read fun and interesting monkey facts.

The article talks about the discovery of a new monkey in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The type of monkey was well known by locals but is new to the scientist world.

In a paper published in Plos One, the scientist named the new species: Cercopithecus Lomamiensis, known locally as the Lesula. Make sure to click on the article link to see a picture of the new discovered monkey!

This new discovery is reinforces the importance of renewing the efforts of protecting forests, now days  much of the earth’s living creatures have been studied and photographed but this new discovery shows us that it’s still possible to find new life.

Check us back soon for more interesting monkey facts.
