Conservation International continues to discover new amphibians

| No Comments
Adding to the Conservation International's discovery of four new species of amphibians in Ecuador in 2009, an expedition to Indonesia's remote Foja Mountains on the island of New Guinea by Conservation International and the National Geographic Society has discovered a new, very unique species of frog. The frog (Litoria sp. nov.) has a long, dangling, deflated nose that when the frog is calling points upward. The frog was discovered by herpetologist, Paul Oliver, when it hopped into the expedition camp and perched on a bag of rice.

Thanks again go to my oldest daughter for sending me the link to this discovery.
