This fish species of the genus Guyanancistrus, discovered in 2005, is new to science. It is believed to be all over eastern plateaus of Suriname, on the northern coast of South America, but has been found nowhere else. The ecologists who found it were surprised by the unusually large size of its mouth. (Adrian Flynn/ Conservation International)
