    Thursday Trivia: Tiny Frog

    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.

      Oh my. That is one tiny frog. Amazing that it survives.

      Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

      Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

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