bsvwlyrt3.jpgA new rat has been found inside a volcano, one of the least explored places on the earth. It is a Giant Woolly Rat and it lives in the area encircled by Mount Bosavi, an inactive volcano. The species is called a Bosavi Woolly Rat, and it can measure up to 3 feet long. 40 previously unknown species were found inside the same crater in the forests of Papua New Guinea. The volcano was being filmed for a nature program by BBC entitled Lost Land of The Volcano. Other recent discoveries include a tiny opossum that belongs to the genus Cercartetus that may be a species never discovered before. There are millions more of these undiscovered species, and we will keep finding them as long as they are still surviving.
