…I also learned that in the ten-year period from 1997 to 2007 over 1,000 new species were discovered in the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam.  NOTICE: If you are freaked out by pictures and descriptions of bugs, I wouldn’t click on this link to the CNN story.  The species included 519 plants, 279 fish, 88 frogs, 88 spiders, 46 lizards, 22 snakes, 15 mammals (including a rat which was believed to be extinct for over 11 million years), four birds, four turtles, two salamanders and a toad.

There’s also a level where you get to shoot the dog with a Gatling gun.  Need I say more?
