Spaniards discover animal species paradise in Guinean crater
By Sinikka Tarvainen
Madrid – In the rainforests of Equatorial Guinea in Central Africa, a mysterious volcanic crater is home to hundreds of animal and plant species many of which may be unknown to the scientific world.
“We may have brought back about 100 new animal and plant species,” estimates professor Pablo Cobos, member in a recent expedition of six Spanish and two Guinean scientists who penetrated into the virtually unexplored Luba crater.
“There is a lot left to discover” in the crater located on Bioko, an island belonging to Equatorial Guinea, a former Spanish colony of about half a million residents, Cobos said in a telephone interview with the Deutsche Presse-Agentur dpa. …
The Spanish expedition brought back about 250 different types of butterflies alone. Its findings also include plants, insects, beetles, crustaceans and amphibians.
Larger animals such as mammals, birds and reptiles had to be left for next time because of a lack of funds.
