Top 10 New Species of 2010

The International Institute for Species Exploration at Arizona State University has declared the top 10 species discovered in 2010.

This one to the left is a strange one: the bomb-dropping worm (Swima bombiviridis) that "has these green gills it can kind of throw off, and the predator will follow the gill instead of following the [worm], so it is tripping up the predator."
