New frog species in Vietnam with webbed feet “parachutes” among trees


I want to keep one of these around the house to freak out the dogs whenever they need a little excitement in their lives.

An Australian biologist has described the discovery of a large green “flying” frog in Vietnam that uses its big webbed feet to glide through forests.

Writing in the Journal of Herpetology, Jodi Rowley, an amphibian biologist at the Australian Museum in Sydney, told how she and other researchers “came across a huge green frog, sitting on a log,” not far from the capital, Ho Chi Minh City.
