From a spider that looks like a wizard's hat to a bug with FOUR penises: Scientists reveal the top 10 new species of 2017
From a spider that looks like the sorting hat in Harry Potter, to a deep sea worm that looks like a churro, researchers have revealed the top ten new species for 2017.
The 10th annual list also includes a pink insect that bares a striking resemblance to a leaf, a tomato that appears to bleed when its cut, and a polka dot sting ray.
During the decade since the first list was compiled in 2008, almost 200,000 new species have been discovered - but experts warn we risk not discovering many other species as extinction rates rise.
