New Species in the Congo River

Nov 5, 2009

Scientists are finding species in the lower Congo River that exist nowhere else in the world, reports. There are more than 300 species in the water, which contains one of the highest concentrations of unique species on the planet. Among them is Mondeli bureau, a fish whose name means "white man in an office." Why? Because it's blind, albino, and stunted.
