Abstract

After 50 years in which only one new large mammal had been found worldwide, three new ungulates were found in thr same region of Vietnam within 4 years. The context of the finds is discussed in relation to the continuing finds of other mammals and birds. This paper draws conclusions about the types of places that may still conceal undiscovered mammals and predicts where future finds may be made into the next century.
