A new species of glass frog has been discovered with translucent skin so you can see its insides. The creature, named Hyalinobatrachium dianae, was found in the mountains of eastern Costa Rica and has a distinctive call. While most of its body is a brilliant lime green, like all species of glass frogs, the skin on its underside is see-though, making its organs easily visible. (Source)

Environmentalists weren’t the only ones celebrating when a new species of frog – Hyalinobatrachium dianae – was discovered recently in Costa Rica.

Fans of The Muppet Show and Sesame Street have been quick to notice that this new species of glass frog, which was found by Costa Rican Amphibian Research Centre founder Brian Kubicki in the southern Talamanca mountains, bears a striking resemblance to Kermit the Frog. [x]
