New species?

The Age reports that a "giant ape" has been sighted and videotaped in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Speculation is that it's a new species of chimpanze. Very cool. First George W. Bush and now this, more benign species.

It's always a good thing to find new species when it seems like a large number disappear on a regular basis these days.
Continuing in the benign species vein - it's suspected that a Mt. Saint Helens eruption could flush out some Sasquatch, or at least prime the ground for good footprinting.
