You are looking at the first-ever picture of a rainbow frog. A species of toxic frogs that was last seen 87 years ago in 1924, and was never photographed until now. The rainbow frog was only known from a black and white sketch drawn in the 1920s. So you’re really witnessing something magnificent here.
The frog was rediscovered in the jungles of Sawarak/Malaysia, two meters up a tree. 3 frogs were found then, a male, a female, and a baby *aww a little family*. The team who discovered it has been looking for months (the frog was put on the list of suspected-extinct species in the last few years). They studied similar frog species to estimate the whereabouts of the rainbow frog. And they finally got it right.
It puts a smile on my face to know that this little guy has been secretly surviving for almost 90 years. Welcome back little fella.
Thank you Subzero 🙂
