There are lots of tiny frogs in the world, but Paedophryne amauensis is the smallest. It measures just 7.7 mm about 0.3 inch and can fit on the face of a dime.

The Louisiana State University herpetologists who discovered the frog in 2010 heard it before they ever saw it. While studying the wildlife of Papua New Guinea, they became curious about an odd mating call they heard at night. Turns out the big noise came from a very small source.

That's pretty interesting. Do you think its poisonous.? I wonder if it eats a lot of little bitty insects
