Seven New Species of Mammals Discovered in Philippines

Filed under: DiscoveryMouse

Seven New Species of Mammals Discovered

Adorable Find!

Seven new forest mouse species have come out of hiding on Luzon, the largest island of the Philippines, researchers announced Monday.

Observations of each mouse's morphology as well as genetics suggest the seven newbies are part of a new subgenus called Megapomys, which is part of the genus Apomys. These mice are relatively large, weighing less than a half pound tails that are as long as, or slightly shorter, than the length of the animal's body and head.

"It is extraordinary that so many new species of mammals remain to be discovered in the Philippines, And we are nowhere close to the end of our discoveries. The Philippines may have the greatest concentration of unique species of animals of any country in the world,"

according to Danilo Balete, leader of the project's field team.

There's hoping they discover a dragon or a unicorn next!

Larry The Cat (Finally) Does His Job

Filed under: CatMouseHunting

Larry the cat finally does his jon

About time!

It's been over two months after we posted about the British prime minister adopting a 4-year-old tabby cat named Larry to catch mice.

Having once been a wild cat, Larry was known for his "strong predatory drive," but those campaign promises that got him hired didn't have any merit.

Larry was not the mouser they said he was, instead of hunting the lazy kitty has been enjoying the sweet life at the prime minister's famous residence, 10 Downing Street.

But last Friday, Larry finally made good on his promise. The kitty came from the Downing Street garden — with a mouse in his mouth. And, there might be more where that came from!

Larry has time still left in his term to bring out more of the predator within.
