Indonesia's 'Lost World' reveals more surprises
Date:12/17/2007

ter protection of the area.

During the June expedition, the team documented two mammals, a Cercartetus pygmy possum, one of the worlds smallest marsupials, and a Mallomys giant rat, both currently under study and apparently new to science. They also recorded the mating displays of several rare and little-known birds for the first time.

The giant rat is about five times the size of a typical city rat, said Kristofer Helgen, a scientist with the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. With no fear of humans, it apparently came into the camp several times during the trip.

The film crew obtained the first film documentation of several spectacular birds found in Foja, capturing on tape the full courtship displays of the golden-fronted bowerbird (Amblyornis flavifrons) and of the black sicklebill bird of paradise (Epimachus fastuosus).

They also recorded the lost Bird of Paradise Parotia berlepschi (known as Berlepschs six-wired bird of paradise), and the newly described wattled smoky honeyeater (Melipotes carolae), both known only from the Foja Mountains.

CI and LIPI plan another expedition back to the Foja Mountains in late 2008 or 2009. This proposed expedition will seek to survey the summit forests of the highest peak, and the little-studied lower montane elevations. They expect to find additional new species of frogs, mammals, butterflies, and plants.
