    That's one TINY frog!
    I wonder how big the babies are!
    Imagine tryng to cultivate feeders for THOSE!

    Just goes to prove that we don't know quite as much about our world as we think we do!

    I guess it might eat mites or something.

    These study always prove that Humans still have not uncovered the secrets of the our planet. It goes to show you that there is still more to learn and it is so important to cultivate more people that care about this planet! That is why I am a teacher!

    Sallie, I couldn't agree with you more. It's a shame that most of today's youth are not interested in what nature has to offer.

    Our youth are one step away from nature because of what technology offers...which is bad and good. They have so much more to their fingertips than I did when I was their age.

    To get them closer to nature I have native species in my room...usually amphibians and discuss how these animals are keystone species to our water ways and how planet's health. They seem to understand it a little more.

    I like technology and all, but I don't find it interesting. Reptiles and Amphibians are so diverse it's amazing. I've taught my 6yr old to appreciate and value nature from day one. She's a hands on type of girl. Sometimes a little too much.
    Somethings SHOULD remain outdoors. Especially if they are dead,lol

    Sallie, I couldn't agree with you more. It's teachers like you that we need the most.

    I will officially sound like a school now by saying ::: THAT IS SO TOTALLY COOL!!!

    This is why we need to stop deforestation and try to explore more of the world to understand it and find more answers.

    Merlin, the photo of the teensy tiny blob on the edge of the penny shows the size of the microfrog just metamorphosed.

    It's interesting that pitcher plants are carnivorous, like Venus fly traps. Iim surprised that the frogs aren't digested by the plant!!

    SO COOL!

    Too Cute!! But they are not new - just a newly discovered species thought to be extinct. (unless I read it wrong). The original specimens were thought to be a juvenile of another larger species.

    How cool - I love it when we find a critter we haven't killed off yet! :rolleyes:

    My son was always hands on in nature - but usually with sticks, rocks and pinecones... never had to worry that whatever was in his pockets could be alive! :eek:

    I was amazed by the same thing, that they aren't digested!

    This is so cool! Blows me aways when I learn about these types of things! It's is so cool that they have adapted to lay their eggs inside the pitcher plant and the tad poles swim around in there!
    Thanks Mike that was a great article:D

    That's so freaking cool. Super neat. I can't believe a frog can be that tiny.
