We have to admit that we lived in a very strange, unpredictable, yet magnificent and wonderful at the same time. Time after time our great mother nature keep evolve itself, create new lives year by year. Even now, there are invention of 5 new animals discovered freshly from the mother earth. New species which found by all the restless scientists who spent most of their time in the middle of wildlife, observed it – every single wild animal day and night. We, as the commoner, should be thankful for these people whose committed themselves on behalf of the living creatures.
Behind us, evolution keep happened among creatures other than humankind. Our earth keep changing over the pass thousands of years. We could track some old record of ancient animal that already vanished, which we called them as the extinct animal. Nothing would last forever on this earth. If, one species could extinct, then it’s just the matter of time for another to fall in the same pit. From the great jungle of Amazon into the death cold of Arctic, nothing is resistance of the term called evolution. If, you could survive you shall live. It’s the repetition that keep happened, new one would rise, and the old one would die.
That is sad, but that’s how this world work. But, do not lose any hope, because our mother nature have its own way to create something new. Just like I said previously, we are here to discuss about the new invention of 5 new animals discovered freshly from the mother earth you should know. Perhaps, one day you would see one of these animals with your own eyes and not mistaken them as an alien. From mammals to insects, the addition of number of new species keep escalating every single year. Actually, there are also some numbers of new plant species that have been discovered, but now, we would only talk about the animals.
1. Tapanuli Orangutan
Be proud Indonesian peoples, one of these new species was found in our beloved country. Up before the Tapanuli orangutan was found there are six species of great apes that have been recognized: Bornean orangutan, bonobos, Sumatran orangutan, chimpanzees, and western and eastern gorillas. Apparently, the list has growth into seven species. The new species of the great apes called Tapanuli orangutan was discovered in district South Tapanuli in North Sumatra.
Sadly, it’s been reported that this species was remained only approximate about eight-hundred individuals because of the threat of hunting and the loss of their natural habitat. The size of Tapanuli orangutan was similar to the size of common orangutan. The female approximately about four feet and the male was under five feet. Tapanuli orangutan was spread around their natural habitat which is sized about two hundred thousands acres.
2. The Gryffindor’s Hat
Do you remember the scene when Harry Potter and his other friends of him, Ron Weasley, and Harmione Granger have to wait the decision of the talking pointy hat magical creature that gonna show them which party they would join – do you remember the shape of that hat? If you remember, that the gryffindor’s hat species look like. Based by his shape, the scientist decided to called this new species as the gryffindor’s hat. Other name of this species known as eriovixia gryffindori.
Eriovixia gryffindori was found in Karnataka, India and have been nominated as the smallest creature that been discovered – the sized was approximately about two millimeters. However, if you curious what animal is this, eriovixia was one of spider species – thanks to their epic resemble appearance of the hat, now this spider perhaps become one of the famous spider around the world.
3. Epimeria Quasimodo (The Amphipod)
Epimeria Quasimodo which also known as a hunchbacked shrimp is one out of twenty-six other species come of amphipods from genus epimeria. This species was easily recognized thanks to their vivid colors of bodies. Epimaeria Quasimodo was found for the first time by the scientist in the ocean. This amphipod size is about fifty millimeters (two inches) in length. If you curious why this animal name was familiar – well, if you ever watch Disney cartoon movie called The Hunchback of Notre-Dame, perhaps you would understand why this shrimps would be called Quasimodo.
Have a clue now? Yes, apparently the shape of this creature is looked similar with the main characters in that movie – Quasimodo The Hunchback. The Hunchback of Notre-Dame itself was lifted from the novel created by Victor Hugo in 1831 with the same title. If you want to see this unique shrimp, you could take a dive in the Southern Ocean. Don’t worry though, this creature is very easy to recognize.
4. The Baffling Beetle
From far away, you wouldn’t notice any strange with the appearance of this beetle. But, if you look closely you would notice there are two insects that live as one body. There are two different shape of bodies and you could tell it by their colors. The red body and legs belongs to ant, and the darker body (upper body) belong to beetle, more specific the Nymphister Kronaueri beetle. So, you could say that the beetle was lived among the ants.
The baffling beetle size approximately about one a half millimeters. This species live among the army ants, but live exclusively (separate) from the clan. The beetle itself firstly found in Costa Rican Rainforest in 2017.
5. The Blue Tarantula
The last but not least – the new creation found in our mother earth is the blue tarantula. We all know about tarantula, the dark scary giant spider that could make your stomach aching. Honestly, I am not a fan of this animal. I am one of those peoples who would whimper and run away immediately whenever I see – even a tiny spider. However, a herpetologist of Biodiversity Assessment Team called Andrew Snyder found the marvelous blue tarantula when he and his team traveled into Potaro Plateau in Guyana.
He discovered a group of blue tarantula lived in a rotten stump holes underneath the Guyana Forest. Their bright blue color was got the attention of Andrew, and apparently that night Andrew find more of blue tarantula during the exploration. There is no deep research about this species, yet. So, let’s hope the official body conservation in Guyana would take the next step to protect this new species of spider. But I would definitely out – I am out!
