They're on a roll down there in Africa, first the long horn, and now this :)

Maybe because there finally is some less wars and conflicts, scientists finally get a chance to look at the local fauna.

It looks MM, but it doesn't seem to have emboli or tibial hooks. Maybe other pics can show that in more detail. Awesome find!

Most likely, I'd say that it is like Pamphos. MM with that bright purple/blue, just wish they had a female. All that matters to me :D

What? How do you know that? Was there a new post on that? I got confirmation on it being true from the wildlife reserve itself...
Can you link me to the new info?
I am wanting to see some info on this aswell. I have seen some newer images surfacing from different sources from where the giant horn sp. since where it was first posted.
