|The Amazon is |
bursting with life
New species are often found in areas of the world that are harder for us to explore. Oceans are a good example. Rainforests are a great example. The rainforests of the Amazon and Madagascar are constantly revealing new creatures to us. Researchers in a rainforest in Borneo recently discovered a new species of mushroom that looks like a colorful sea sponge. So much so, in fact, that they named the species Spongiforma squarepantsii, which is officially the most ridiculous species name I’ve heard since Dracorex hogwartsia.
