Sneezing monkey, walking fish found in Himalayas
MetadataShow full item record
A monkey that sneezes when it rains and a "walking" fish are among more than 200 species discovered in the fragile eastern Himalayas in recent years, according to conservation group World Wildlife Foundation(WWF). WWF has compiled a survey of wildlife discovered by scientists across Bhutan, northeast India, Nepal, north Myanmar and southern Tibet in a bid to raise awareness of the threats facing the ecologically sensitive region. The species include what the WWF described as a blue-colored "walking snakehead fish", which can breathe air, survive on land for four days and slither up to 400 meters (a quarter of a mile) on wet ground.
