'Garden of Eden' discovered in Papua New Guinea

Strangely, the fruits of knowledge have all gone rotten.

Dozens of animal and plant species ranging from vividly coloured birds to exotic frogs, and from the world’s largest-flowered rhododendron to a tree kangaroo, in a hidden world in Papua New Guinea by scientists who have nicknamed it a "Garden of Eden".

Kind of reminds you that we don't know shit. And what the hell is a tree kangaroo?

An international team of scientists says it has found a "lost world" in the Indonesian jungle that is home to dozens of new animal and plant species. "It's as close to the Garden of Eden as you're going to find on Earth," said Bruce Beehler, co-leader of the group.

I give it about a year and a half before it becomes the "Garden of Eden Shopping Center". Nothing defines human behavior like the discovery of an untouched, unsoiled by human hands, piece of the world where wonders beyond our imagination exist and then, we land a helicopter on it.

The team recorded new butterflies, frogs, and a series of remarkable plants that included five new palms and a giant rhododendron flower. The survey also found a honeyeater bird that was previously unknown to science.

Alas, no dinosaurs. Maybe next time folks.

They didn't tell you about the 40 species they made extinct by stomping in there dragging bacteria and shit with them.

Just shows, how much shit environmentalists spout about 'species extinction rates' they have no idea how may species actually exist in the first place.

Oh, and a tree kangaroo is just like a normal kangaroo but it tried to hide when he saw them coming.

I can just see it now....

'Quick, get up that tree!'

'I can't climb!'

'Well you'd better learn fucking fast.'

'Shit, they've seen us, shall we get down?'

'Nah, stay up here and look like it's natural, we'll just have to fuck with their heads instead.'
