New Species Found

A new species was found on the island Pandora earlier this week. The organism is called a prolemuris. It was discovered by Britton Cloutier, a scientist exploring the island. This species is blue-green in color, has large binocular-like eyes, large ears that move independently, and a membrane that grows out of its sides between lower arm and thigh. It has 6 limbs-two legs and four arms.

The Prolemuris has twin operculi near the shoulder/breast bone which supplies air directly into the lungs. Unlike most animals on Pandora, the Prolemuris possesses only two eyes. It is a heterotroph that eats the plants and some insects on Pandora. This animal is mainly found in the tree canopy to avoid dangerous predators on the rainforest floor.
