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.

These images are from National Geographic.
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.
