Animals discovered in New Guinea

I saw these amazing animals on a news website.
There is a frog with a long dangly nose! I like the colourful pigeon best.

Apparently these and some other beasts of varying kinds have been newly discovered on the island of New Guinea within Indonesian territory.
At first I thought they had reported wrong because I thought they referred to Papua New Guinea. But New Guinea is a different place to Papua New Guinea as I have just learned.
And who says you don’t learn a new thing every day, huh?
I think all these names are lazy. New Zealand? Really, Abel Tasman? NEW Zealand, after the original Zeeland in the Netherlands. You couldn’t think of a better name? Ah well. And what about New York and New England? Settlers are so unoriginal.
