Another New Frog Find

This one is stone cold...

Another week, another frog finding: this time, the new frog, affectionaly known as the "stone frog," was spotted in Vietnam. It gets its name from its extremely bumpy back, which looks a lot like a pile of rocks. The species, a stone leaf-litter frog, was thought to be a part of another species when found in 2013, but DNA tests prove that it's a new species to humans. Like many frogs, it faces extinction and researchers are already requesting its protection.

Each frog is less than 2 inches long and has a very high-pitched, fast call.

What do you think of the new stone frog?
