Rare animals, plants and insects from Suriname
A team of scientists from the International Society for Nature Conservation went in search of rare and unknown species of animals, insects and plants in Suriname - a country on the northeast coast of South America. During the expedition, studied the 1,378 species in the mountain areas, including 60 species that were previously unknown. Let's take a closer look at the varied wildlife of the beautiful places.

Tree frog (Hypsiboas geographicus) climbs a branch in a forest near the mountain Kasikasima.
Many species of insects secrete a waxy Fulgoroidea secret that sometimes freezes, forming long filaments, as in this picture.These filaments may provide protection from predators who pounce on them, taking over the body of his victim. The filaments break off, saving the life of an insect.
Coprophanaeus lancifer - the largest species of scarab beetles in South America.
Long-tailed cat (Leopardus wiedii) sitting on a tree.
Kamponotusy (Camponotus sp.) Eating a dead insect. During the expedition were discovered 149 species of ants, and it is not a complete list.
Tree frog Hypsiboas sp., Like other reptiles, has a semi-skin, which makes it super-sensitive to changes in the environment.
Storm clouds hang over the rapids of the river Palumeu near the small village of Campo in the south-east of Suriname.

Phragmipedium lindleyanum - one of a number of rare and beautiful species of orchids found in previously investigated the mountains Grens in Suriname.
This tiny beetle (Canthidium cf. Minimum), may represent a previously unknown type of science, and even gender. The length of its body is only 2.3 millimeters. Perhaps it is the smallest of dung beetles in the Guiana Highlands.
While the majority of grasshoppers feed on the leaves, the view Copiphora longicauda preys on insects and other invertebrates.
Many mammals are extremely difficult to see in the woods, so scientists have to set the camera to release the shutter automatically. Photo: long-tailed cat interested in one of these cameras. The camera is equipped with an infrared sensor that detects the passing of animals and releases the shutter
Unique granite mountain Kasikasima rises 700 meters above the rainforest. On this mountain, the scientists found several unusual species, including previously unknown to science beetles.
South-eastern Suriname may seem a tropical paradise, but not for all living organisms. In the photo: Wolf spider eats poison dart frogs.
Creek at the foot of the mountain Kasikasima in Suriname.
Dart frogs species Anomaloglossus sp. Locals use the poison dart frogs to hunt animals.
This grasshopper (Pseudophyllinae: Teleutiini) is so atypical, perhaps, scientists will assign it to a new genus. His torso is longer than usual, and the legs are covered with sharp spines that help to deter predators
Bright coloring psevdokorallovoy snake (Erythrolamprus aesculpi) helps her to scare away predators, because it is not as toxic as the real coral snake.
Bat species Artibeus planirostris able to break the large fruit with its sharp teeth.
Marmosops parvidens opossum species living on trees and feeds on insects and fruit. Small mammals play an important role, as the spread of plant seeds and promote reforestation.
Marant (Peltogyne venosa) forms part of the massive aerial root system, which ensures the stability of the tree, especially in high winds and floods. 
Mountains and vast virgin forests of south-eastern Suriname is often shrouded in clouds. This is one of the wettest regions of the country.
Tree Frog Scinax sp. - One of the six new frog species discovered by scientists during an expedition to Suriname.
Fellow of the International Society for Nature Conservation is in the middle of the flooded camp in the south-east of Suriname.Due to the unusually heavy rains Palumeu river burst its banks and flooded the camp, prompting scientists to leave earlier than planned.
Semi-aquatic lizard Neusticurus bicarinatus lives in small ponds and streams and great to swim under water.
Hemigrammus aff. ocellifer - the closest relative of tetra fish, which is popular with aquarists.
