The pink-eyed leaf katydid shown here -- found in the forest canopy of Papua New Guinea -- is just one of the many brand-new additions to the animal kingdom this week: Scientists discovered more than 200 undiscovered species in that region; the Census of Marine Life reports 750,000 species of marine life that remain unknown in the ocean; and one very adorable baby tiger joined her mother at the Frankfurt Zoo.

We've got this and more in our Best Animal Photos of the Week slideshow.
