Purple Frog - Found in INDIA

It’s got to be weird how after hundreds if not thousands of years that we keep finding different types of creatures and this time it’s the purple frog delights scientists.

This is one of the strangest looking frogs ever discovered and has been put in its own taxonomic family, chubby and 7cm long the amphibian was found hopping around in western India.
Scientists named it Nasikabatrachus sahyadrensis (they love their names), other than looking a bit weird this flog is a really important find for scientists for many reasons including how it tells us about Earth history and the early evolution of advanced frogs.
