December 13, 2011 by staff 

200 New Species, A psychedelic gecko and a monkey with an “Elvis” hairdo are among 208 new species described last year by scientists in the Mekong River region of Southeast Asia, a conservation group announced Monday.

The animals were discovered in a biodiverse region that is threatened by habitat loss, deforestation, climate change and overdevelopment, the WWF said in a report.

The newly described species include a “psychedelic gecko” in southern Vietnam and a nose-less monkey in a remote province of Myanmar that looks like it wears a pompadour.
