MetadataShow full item record
A monkey that sneezes when it rains and a “walking” fish are among more than 200 species discovered in the ecologically fragile eastern Himalayas in recent years, according to conservation group Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF). WWF has compiled a survey of wildlife discovered by scientists across Bhutan, northeast India, Nepal, northern Myanmar, and southern Tibet, in an attempt to raise awareness of the threats facing the sensitive region. The species include what the WWF described as a blue-colored “walking snakehead fish” that can breathe air, survive on land for four days, and slither up to 400 metres on wet ground.
