Scientist Discovered Species Looks Exactly Like Kermit the Frog

Down in Costa Rica, researchers have discovered an attractive, acquainted looking new species. This transparent newfound amphibian is a frog identified as Diane’s Bare-hearted Glassfrog, since its underbelly is translucent and takes on the appearance of glass. Most astonishingly, this strange creature looks just like Kermit the Frog!  The frog has evaded discovery until now because it lives in an isolated location and also because it’s mating call is quite akin to an insect's call. Brian Kubicki, Stanley Salazar, and Robert Puschendorf are the inventors who discovered this beautiful Kermit look-alike between 400m and 800m up in the Talamanca Mountains, stating that its call sounds like “a single tonal long metallic whistle-like note.” Not only did Dr. Kubicki able to capture some vivid photos of the frog, he also decided to name it after his mom Janet Diana Kubicki, according to the Costa Rican Amphibian Research Center.
