Top Ten New Species

It seems that scientists are always discovering a new type of frog or insect and getting all excited that they have uncovered a “new” animal while the rest of us don’t really see a big difference. However I think you will agree some of the species on this list are truly  unique.

The pancake batfish (Halieutichthys intermedius) was found in the Gulf of Mexico, and walks along the sea floor using its fleshy fins. It is one of the top ten new species of 2010 announced by the International Institute for Species Exploration at Arizona State University.

You can tell by the picture why they named this the pancake batfish, BUT...

Doesn't it sound like you pick one from column A, one from column B, and another from column C? like, say,

the taco sharkkitty
the spaghetti noodle narwhal squid
the pinwheel elephant crab
