Seven new species of “night frogs” have been discovered in the Western Ghats in India, the only place in the world you’ll find these creatures. Four of the new species are so tiny they can fit on your fingernail. Finding them was tricky, due to their size and habitat, living in thick vegetation. Nearly a third of amphibian species are threatened with extinction and scientists are hoping more can be done to protect their habitat, much of which is disturbed by human activities.
