Nairobi, Kenya. Scientists say they have discovered a new species of monkey living in the remote forests of the Democratic Republic of Congo -- an animal well-known to local hunters but until now, unknown to the outside world. In a paper published Wednesday in the open-access journal Plos One, the scientists describe the new species that they call Cercopithecus Lomamiensis. They say it is only the 2nd discovery of a monkey species in 28 years. 28 Years, Democrat Republic, 38970701Jpg 758426, Cercopithecus Lomamiensi, Lesula Nueva, Special, Dominican Republic, Africa, Animal
