Newly Discovered Frog Species Looks Exactly Like Kermit


Kermit is possibly the world’s most well-known frog, and now there’s a real-world frog species that he can claim as relatives. Hyalinobatrachium dianae was found in Costa Rica and, in addition to having creepy translucent skin, it looks just like Kermit.

Scientists say they didn’t notice the frog before because its call sounds more like an insect. Pictures of the little guy were snapped by Dr. Brian Kubicki who released a study on the species along with zoologist Stanley Salazar and Robert Puschendorf.
