From our "Well, Maybe Conan Doyle DID Exaggerate A Bit" -files, the UK Telegraph reports on excited scientists finding a remote, high-on-plateau, isolated from evolution "Lost World" in Australia.
One of the prehistoric species encountered: a really big reptile. Said one of the explorers:
"And then, coming back by night, we saw an incredible leaf-tailed gecko."
"It was the discovery of the trip. This thing was mind-blowing, completely bizarre. It's really big, around eight inches with long spindly legs and huge eyes."
Even more exciting, within 15 minutes the scientist saved 15 percent on his insurance.
