New species keep coming

This cute orange toad from Brazil (it's hard to think of a toad as cute, but this one is) is the latest in a parade of new amphibian species.

When I was doing a story for the World Wildlife Fund in the rainforest in Brazil, I heard about a test they did in the canopy to bring everything down to the ground onto plastic in a measured area. They found hundreds of new species. Woke up that night with something that looked like a giant roach on my forehead. All of it was very interesting. But I never saw a bug that was a meter long.
