Real-life Kermit the Frog species

Kermit the Frog discovered in real life in Costa Rica, it’s bright green, has big white eyeballs and it’s a species of glassfrog.

The bright green frog just like Kermit, recently discovered by Brian Kubicki of Costa Rican Amphibian Research Center, called Hyalinobatrachium dianae.



The authors (Brian Kubicki, Stanley Salazar, and Robert Puschendorf) distinguished H. dianae from other glassfrogs due to its unique combination of morphological characteristics, advertisement call, and genetic distance. This new species was described from six specimens collected at three different sites along the Caribbean slopes of Costa Rica between 400 to 900 meters above sea level. Hyalinobatrachium dianae was named in honor of the senior author’s mother Janet Diane Kubicki.
