Very cute little frog

Some rather cute pictures of the newly discovered Noble’s Pygmy Frog are here.

It looks pretty much like the baby frogs we see in the garden – the only difference is this is a fully grown adult.

For those with a technical interest the details are in the the journal Copeia [Lehr, E., and A. Catenazzi. 2009. A new species of minute Noblella (Anura: Strabomantidae) from southern Peru: the smallest frog of the Andes. Copeia 2009(1): 148-156.]
