On a recent expedition to New Guinea's Foja Mountains, researchers discovered numerous new and "lost" species. One of the rediscovered beasts is the legendary Berlepsch's Six-wired Bird of Paradise (Parotia berlepschi) shown here. So named for the odd wires that extend from its head, the creature was first described in 1897 by German ornithologist Otto Kleinschmidt, based on museum specimens. But exactly where in New Guinea the bird made its home was known, and it was eventually largely forgotten. This is the first time scientists have photographed the bird. Among the new animal species the team found are a honeyeater bird, 20 frogs and four butterflies.
