Friday Frog

I always like when the Friday Frog is a newly discovered species, and hot off the presses is news of Diasporus ventrimaculatus, a newly discovered species of so-called ‘dink’ frog:

The species, discovered in the Talamanca mountains of Costa Rica, is extra interesting because it exhibits a wide range of coloration:
