In the foothills of Costa Rica, about 400 to 800m high up in the mountains, Kermit was waiting for someone to find him. Brian Kubicki, Stanley Salazar and Robert Puschendorf discovered this critter in the Carribean Foothills of Costa Rica.
This little critter has evaded the limelight for so long because of its remote habitat in the foothills and because its mating call sounds very much like that of an insect, like a “single, tonal, long, metallic, whistle like note”. Otherwise its appearance is unmistakably like that of the main character of the beloved Muppet film series.
Its beady eyes and bright green skin remind one of Kermit’s bobbing head and big, but soft, voice.
The researchers are calling it Diane’s bare hearted glass frog because of its unique translucent underbelly through which its heart is visible along with some of its other organs. The frog is named after Janet Diane Kubicki, Brian’s mother.
