New Rodent !
“A new species of rodent has been discovered by World Conservation Society researcher Dr. Robert Timmins. He found this creature in a hunter’s market in Central Laos. The creature known as Kha-Nyou to the locals is so unique it represents an entire new family of wildlife. Kha-Nyou diverged from other rodents millions of years ago.”

I find it amazing that there still find creatures as large as mammals and reptiles that are unknown to science. Shows how much remains to be done to build up the complete Tree of Life.
