Oh, yes indeed. How exciting!

It’s not yet official, but a research team visiting the deep jungles of Papua New Guinea believe that an echidna named after British naturalist Sir David Attenborough, thought to no longer exist, is actually still alive, reports the BBC:

The month-long expedition by scientists from the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) involved travelling to parts of the mountain range, covered by thick jungle, which had remained unexplored for more than 45 years.

Jonathan Baillie, ZSL’s Evolutionarily Distinct and Globally Endangered (Edge) programme manager, said: “We hope that Sir David Attenborough will be delighted to hear that his namesake species is still surviving in the wilds of the Papaun jungle.”

The creature had not been recorded since a Dutch botanist collected the only known specimen in the cloud forest of the Cyclops Mountains in 1961.

As a result, it was widely assumed that the shoe box-sized species (Zaglossus attenboroughi) was extinct.

But while the Edge team were in the area, they spoke to local tribespeople who said that they had seen the creature as recently as 2005.

The scientists also discovered “nose pokes”, holes in the ground made by the echidnas as they stuck their long noses into soil to feed.

In a nation renowned for its extremely harsh punishment for drug crimes, Indonesia’s Vice President said it was just fine and dandy for Marijuana to be included in everyday cooking

“It’s alright to use it as a food seasoning,” VP Jusuf Kalla was quoted as saying by the Jakarta Post daily.

 The comments come after two Indonesian agencies recommended the government review policy outlawing marijuana for recreational purposes.

One official even reckons national policy should follow counties like the Netherlands, and legalise modest use of the wacky weed.

Local Indonesian dishes like mutton and beef curry are said to be laced with marijuana seeds to give them a distinctive local flavour.

 A vicious attack has left an 8 year old Indonesian boy dead over the weekend in an attack rare in its kind .

 “The Komodo attacked him, bit him and tossed him around, and only released him after villagers came and threw stones at it,” Manggarai barat district police chief Buce Hello said.

The boy, named Mansur, was having a toilet stop in a bush area on Saturday when he was attacked .

The island, one of the largest in the Komodo national park, has no medical clinic and the boy, a local villager, died shortly after the attack, he said.

The park and the western and northern coastlines of neighbouring Flores island are the natural habitats of the giant Komodo dragon, which is the world’s largest monitor lizard.

The lizard can grow up to 3m long and weigh up to 140kg.

There are an estimated 3000 Komodo dragons in the park and surrounding areas.
