New Frogs In Ecuador

Student Veronica Urgiles helps discover frogs

New frog species are always exciting to find, so when student Veronica Urgiles helped to discover not one but two species, she had to have felt excited. The frog lover didn't only find them, but she was even able to help describe and name the amphibians, one of which she chose to name after her professor.

You can see one of the species, the Pristimantis cajanuma, here. It's not only super cute, but it has different unique colors, which makes it look even more interesting. The frogs were discovered in Ecuador by a team of UCF scientists who are now able to release their findings after full analysis.
