    Yahoo News (USA) April 22nd, 2015 06:02 PM: Kermit the Frog Look-Alike Discovered in Costa Rica

    Already dubbed a real-life Kermit, a new species of frog has been identified in the rainforests of Costa Rica. The inch-long creature, scientifically named Hyalinobatrachium dianae, joins Costa Rica's 13 other glass frogs, named for their translucent bodies through which you can view their organs. One of the characteristics that sets the new species apart from other glass frogs is the advertisement call males use to attract females. Study leader Brian Kubicki*told CBS News*that this frog*"sounds more like an insect than most*other frogs," which might be why it went unnoticed for so long.
