Scientists Discover Real-Life Kermit The Frog

One of the most iconic Muppets has been discovered in the tropical rainforest of Costa Rica

For those of you who loved the Jim Henson’s The Muppets, you’re in for a cool surprise.

Scientists have discovered a real-life Kermit the Frog and he lives in the rainforest of Costa Rica!

While it may not be as big as the muppets version of Kermit (it’s only and inch long), it still has those iconic, white bulging eyes.

Along with its captivating eyes, this frog has a translucent body through which you can see its organs.

In real life this frog is scientifically named Hyalinobatrachium dianae and joins 13 others Costa Rican species of  glass frogs.

Despite its bright-green skin and bulging white eyes, H. dianae had evaded biologists until a few specimens were collected by scientists with the Costa Rican Amphibian Research Center.
