New mammal species found!

So a new species is found. That is so cool. People want to explore space and all that and it is fine, but there's an entire planet that hasn't been fully explored yet! That is so amazing that God has made so many different things!

In a rare discovery of a new species of mammal, zoologists on Thursday said
they had identified a shrew-like creature called a grey-faced sengi living
in a small community in remote Tanzania.

Sengis -- small, furry, insect-eating mammals that live on forest floors -- are also called elephant-shrews.

Until now, only 15 species of sengis were known, but this one is truly exceptional, the
proud investigators said.
