An incredible variety of new animal species have been discovered around the world over the last decade. Most recently, a new type of river dolphin, the Inia araguaiaensis, was discovered in the Araguaia river basin in Brazil.

IBTimes UK brings you our top 10 of the new incredible wildlife of recently discovered species, from a sneezing monkey to a small shark that crawls along the seabed.

Walking shark, Hemiscyllium halamhera

This type of epaulette shark was discovered off the eastern Maluku island of Halmahera, Indonesia. It was spotted by divers as it "walked" along the seafloor. It can grow up to 27 inches long and is harmless to humans. In 2013, it was classified as a new species, although it was first seen in 2008.

Skeleton shrimp, Liropus Minisculus

These amphipods belong to a family called Caprellidae. They were found living in a reef cave offshore from California's Catalina island and were identified by experts from the University of Seville. Their descriptions were published in October 2013, in the journal Zootaxa. They are only a few millimetres in length.

Sneezing monkey of Myanmar, Rhinopithecus strykeri

This monkey was discovered in 2010 in northern Myanmar (Burma). It has upturned nostrils which fill with water when it rains, causing the primate to sneeze. Fauna and Flora International discovered the species as part of the Myanmar Primate Conservation Programme.

Pea-sized frog, Microhyla nepenthicola

The tiny frog was found in Borneo, southeast asia in 2010, by Conservation International. The largest adult males do not reach more than half an inch long and it has been described as the smallest frog to live in Europe, Asia and Africa. It takes part in an "amphibian symphony" at dusk, making rasping noises with silent intervals.
