Scientists Discover New Frog Species

A new species of frog has been found hiding in plain sight in New York City. University scientists helped discover this new species with scientists from the University of Alabama. For years, biologists mistook the frog for a more widespread variety of leopard frog. This one, however, prefers not to stray far from the Big Apple and has an unusual croak. The frog lives in the city’s ponds and marshes, sometimes within view of the Statue of Liberty, so uncovering the frog’s true identity was a surprise for scientists.
