Already dubbed a real-life Kermit, a new species of frog has been identified in the rainforests of Costa Rica.
The inch-long creature, scientifically named Hyalinobatrachium dianae, joins Costa Rica's 13 other glass frogs, named for their translucent bodies through which you can view their organs.
One of the characteristics that sets the new species apart from other glass frogs is the advertisement call males use to attract females.
The researchers recorded this frog call in the field and found that it consists of "a single tonal long metallic whistle-like note," according to a description of the new species published earlier this year in the journal Zootaxa.
Study leader Brian Kubicki told CBS News that this frog "sounds more like an insect than most other frogs," which might be why it went unnoticed for so long.

Perhaps it's from lack of sleep, but I can't stop laughing at this image. I've been back 3 times to look at it again, and it gets me each time.
