Mom's trying to keep up...

...and as mankind kills 'em off, she's presenting us with new species:
"New species found in Indonesia"
"Scientists exploring a forest on a remote Indonesian island say they have discovered several new species, including the world's smallest known wallaby, a long-nosed frog and a yellow-eyed gecko.
" of the most interesting of the new species is the long-nosed frog, whose Pinocchio-like protuberance points upwards when the male calls, but downwards when he is less active.
"The team also found other creatures including a tame woolly rat, a gecko with bent toes and yellow eyes, a new type of pigeon and a tiny wallaby that is thought to be the smallest member of the kangaroo family in the world...."

Read the REST.

Companion Piece: "Our most powerful 21st-century technologies - robotics, genetic engineering, and nanotech - are threatening to make humans an endangered species."
"Why the future doesn't need us."
