New mammals discovered in Congo

Four new mammal species have been discovered in the eastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The mammals were found during an expedition to the Misotshi-Kabogo highlands led by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and in another nearby forest with the Centre de Recherche en Sciences Naturelles (CRSN) Lwiro. Both areas were previously unexplored.

The mammals included two new species of shrew and two new species of bat. Researchers are also in the process of describing three new frog species and possibly a new species of chameleon found within the same area.
