A Yahoo news article appearing today entitled Purple frog among 24 new species found in Suriname by Deborah Zabarenko, reports of new species that have been located in the nation of Suriname which includes a purple fluorescent frog. The discovery is unusual in that so many of the species are not insects. Many were frogs and fish and other species of larger organisms that include panthers and pumas, monkeys, reptiles, and bats. In addition new species of dung beetles were found as well as a new ant species. Thirteen scientists were engaged in the exploration.
