 Scientists  find  24  species  in  Suriname  which  borders  Brazil,  Guyana  and  French  Guiana  -  SOUTH  AMERICA  -  AMAMZON  Rainforest.
 
 
 
                                                 
Quote:                
"This  is  a  totally  unexplored  area:  lots  of  new  species,  with  many  more  still  to  be  found,"  says  Leeanne  Alonso,  CI  vice  president  and  head  of  the  RAP  program.  "Our  study  will  be  a  vital  component  in  determining  how  to  promote  economic  development  in  Suriname  while  protecting  the  nation’s  most  valuable  natural  assets."

 This  includes  a  fish,  of  the  genus  Guyanancistrus  and  discovered  by  the  2005  RAP  team,  is  seen  in  this  undated  handout  photo  (click  on  the  link  below).  This  species  of  dwarf  catfish,  likely  to  be  unique  to  the  eastern  plateaus  of  Suriname,  is  called  'big  mouth'  by  its  discoverers  due  to  the  unusually  large  size  of  its  mouth.  It  is  one  of  24  new  species  found  in  the  South  American  highlands  of  Suriname,  conservationists  reported  on  June  4,  2007,  warning  that  these  creatures  are  threatened  by  illegal  gold  mining.
 
 Among  the  species  found  were  the  atelopus  frog,  which  has  distinctive  purple  markings;  six  types  of  fish;  12  dung  beetles,  and  one  ant  species
