Amazing scientific discoveries and invention in 2007

Among the most amazing scientific discoveries and invention in 2007, the one really stands out - in 2007, scientists discovered 700 new species of different organisms. The list includes carnivorous sponges and giant sea spiders in the Weddell Sea off Antarctica. An isolated area of Suriname turned out to be the home of 24 new species. Scientists had actually been exploring for bauxite, used to produce aluminum, when they discovered 12 dung beetles, 6 species of fish, 5 new frogs - one frog even featured fluorescent purple markings - and one ant species.

One more amazing fauna finding was a legless amphibian near Goa, India. Central Vietnam's tropical "green" corridor brought to the scientists 11 new species of plants and animals. A new monkey was discovered in Uganda. Madagascar turned out to be the inhabitant of a sucker-footed bat, while Sumatra and Borneo ' sheltered' a clouded leopard. One of the funniest discoveries was a sea cucumber off the coast of Taiwan, given a nickname of 'Little Strawberry.'
