It may seem like we know everything about the natural world around us, but new species are being discovered every year. The man in charge of helping decide the most interesting discoveries is Quentin Wheeler, vice President of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Arizona State University and founding director of the International Institute for Species Exploration. Some of this year's most fascinating discoveries: a pony the size of a pea, the world's longest stick insect, and naturally decaffeinated coffee.
