The Kermit Connection? New Species Of Frog Found

Kermit the Frog might find it is just a little easier to be green now that his rainbow connection has been discovered in the Central American country of Costa Rica. According to a new study recently published in the journal Zootaxa, a new species of frog just discovered in Costa Rica bears an uncanny resemblance to the late Jim Henson’s most famous Muppet, Kermit the Frog.

In fact, photos of this newly described and discovered frog are reportedly going viral because social media as well as news media outlets are claiming the new frog resembles Kermit. Brian Kubicki, founder of the Costa Rican Amphibian Research Center, stated that he and his research team located half a dozen specimens of a type of glass frog in the in the Talamanca Mountains while exploring the Costa Rican tropical rainforests. He added that he later named to species of frog Hyalinobatrachium dianae after his mother.

The glass frog’s bright lime green skin and large white eyes no doubt contribute to the comparison to Kermit the Frog. Kubicki is OK with the Kermit craze too. He told the press: “I think it is great that this species is getting so much attention around the world.”

He added: “Hopefully this will help increase the awareness of the incredible amphibians found in Costa Rica and the need to continue studying them and conserve their vital habitats. Costa Rica stands alone with its density of amphibian species; within a mere 51,000 square kilometers of national territory, 201 species of amphibians have been documented.”

The details of the investigative team’s findings can be found in the study written by Kubicki and his co-authors Stanley Salazar and Robert Puschendorf. He concluded: “With the addition of this newly described species, Costa Rica is known to have 14 glass frogs inhabiting its tiny national territory.”
