New Species in New Guinea

Check out this Pinocchio frog!

Last week we read about how frogs in New Guinea have been protected from the deadly chytid fungus somehow, and now we've heard about a new species that was also discovered in New Guinea! This new Pnocchio frog has an adorable little nose that suits its name and it even has a cute discovery story.

Scientists say they were hiding from the rain and they looked over to see the little frog sitting on a bag of rice, as if it was just too curious to stay away! It popped over to say hello and the team says that it's more like the frog discovered them rather than vice versa. 

Check out the cute photos of this frog at National Geographic. What do you think?
