New species sneezing monkey found in the Himalayas mounts

A cute little monkey that just can't seem to stop sneezing. What sound like fantasy creatures are actually living, breathing animals--and they're just three of more than 200 new animal species discovered in the Eastern Himalayas during the past five years, according to a new report from the World Wildlife Fund.
The furry fellow often spends rainy days with its head down between its knees because otherwise the water runs into its upturned nose and makes it sneeze.
Hunters in Myanmar's remote and rugged Kachin state, where the monkeys live, say it's easy to track them down during a downpour thanks to their bouts of sneezing.
