Scientists discover ‘lost world’ of strange creatures in remote Australian rainforest perched on giant boulder
Scientists have discovered a “lost world” of unknown creatures in a remote rainforest perched on a giant boulder plateau in Queensland, Australia.
In an expedition bearing parallels to Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic novel, the team of biologists found three unidentified reptile species living on the upland plateau, which is accessible only by helicopter because of a “monstrous wall” of “millions of giant, piled up boulders the size of houses and cars”.
It is believed that the species have been isolated from their closest cousins for millions of years. “We’re talking about animals that are ancient” said Dr. Conrad Hoskin, from James Cook University. (Photo: CONRAD HOSKIN/AFP/Getty Images)
