Scientists Discover New Species


Scientists have discovered a new species. A two-foot long salamander with no rear legs, and spots like a leopard, has been living in the waters of Florida and Alabama. Not a bigfoot, but still cool.

THERE HAVE BEEN whispers for decades that a creature with the spots of a leopard and the body of an eel lurked in the swamps of Florida and Alabama. Rumor had it the animal was as long as a man’s arm, with glistening gray skin, and frills on either side of its face.

But unlike Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster, this animal is real. And today scientists have given it a name: the reticulated siren.

“It was basically this mythical beast,” says David Steen, a wildlife ecologist at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center and co-author of a paper officially describing the new species published December 5 in the journal PLOS ONE. Informally, people have called it the leopard eel, though it is clearly not an eel (and zero parts big cat).

  2. This salamander is much cooler than bigfoot because it actually exists. There are specimens of it and everything.
