“The snail-eating turtle and the Vietnamese crocodile-lizard did not yet exist in encyclopedias in 2016. Until scientists from the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) include these two animals on the list of 115 new species discovered last year in the Greater Mekong region. Eleven amphibians, three mammals, two fish, eleven reptiles and 88 plants appear on this inventory made public on Tuesday.
