New Frog Species Found

Ten new amphibian species, including a transparent “glass” frog (shown above), have been discovered in an expedition in the Darien Gap bordering Panama. Naturalists led by Conservation International and the Ecotropico Foundation of Colombia identified about 200 species of reptiles, birds and amphibians, many apparently unique to the area. We say yippee, as many amphibians are in serious danger of extinction world wide. (Story from The Times)
