Fanged frog that eats birds is discovered in Vietnam

A fanged frog (just what we need, something that can jump like a, um, frog and bite like a vampire) that actually preys on birds, was discovered among 163 new species in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta. (CNN)

The Mekong has been a hotbed for new species discovery, 1,200 since 1997. But of course, “the rapid pace of development” and
this whole global warming thing (which is, of course, a hoax) is threatening the vitality of the region.

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
