New Frog Species Found

There was a new frog species found in Western Australia recently.  It looks like a tiny toad.  It’s only 0.8-inch-long (2-centimeter-long) and was discovered near a river in the Kimberley region.  It’s actually a frog.  You can see more photos and a video of him on National Geographic.

With all the bad news about amphibians facing extinction that I’ve been hearing lately, it’s good to hear some good amphibian news.  It’s amazing that we’ve come this far with technology, yet we still find new animal species.

The world has a lot of a cool stuff to show us.

I’ve giving a presentation on amphibians this weekend. I’ll have to talk about this new guy.
