New Species of Frog Discovered In Madagascar

It's so tiny and cute!

Every time a new frog species is dicovered, it seems like it's tinier than the last. No wonder it took us so long to find the frog in the first place! Many of these critters are as small as micromachine cars, if not smaller. The newest species found was discovered in Madagascar. Scientists found a total of five different species, but they're all teeny tiny.

One of the new species is considered one of the smallest species in the world, measuring in at between 9 and less than 12 mm in length! Apparently if you look long enough, you're bound to find a new species of frog--that is how common it is for us to NOT know a species that's this small, apparently.

Have you heard of any other great frog news recently? Share it in the chat!
