Holy Batrachian: A Flying Frog

Imagine if Innsmouthians could fly!


Mark Wright, WWF's conservation science advisor said: "These exciting finds reinforce just how little we now about the world around us.

"In the Eastern Himalayas we have a region of extraordinary beauty and with some of the most biologically rich areas on the planet.

"Ironically, it is also one of the regions most at risk from climate change, as evidenced by the rapid retreat of the glaciers, and only time will tell how well species will be able to adapt – if at all."

Among the discoveries are a bright green frog (Rhacophorus suffry) which uses its red and long webbed feet to glide in the air.
