Would you believe new species from Australia?

This has been in the news recently, but what fascinated me about it is the place where the new species were found.  Apparently it's a rocky rain forest.  That makes it somewhat difficult to get around on (or in), and this has led to it being relatively little known despite being fairly close to civilization, or whatever they call it in Australia.

This article from CBS News has ten really good pictures of the new critters.

The picture below (which is from National Geographic, naturally -- ha ha) shows why it's so difficult to explore this place.

There could be a lot more ULS (unidentified lizard species) in there.
