It seems you can find anything with Google Earth from top-secret submarines to nude sunbathers and lost caches of forest in Africa. At least that’s what one conservationist group did when they found what they describe as a cache of lost world forest in Africa.

After making the discovery with Google Earth, the researchers travelled to the remote medium-altitude forest area covering about 27 miles. They found massive 150-foot trees, monkeys, large snakes, antelope and other animals there.

The path of green forest was on no map and is said to be the potentially largest area of medium-altitude forest in Southern Africa. Without Google Earth, the area could have gone undiscovered.
