The Carribbean slopes of Costa Rica, apparently, is where you will find the Rainbow Connection.

A few years back, scientists discovered a brand new species of frog in the region, the Hyalinobatrachium dianae, or Diane's bare-hearted glass frog.  What’s unique about this new frog though, is its appearance.  It has bulging white eyes and Kelly green skin, causing this new frog to bear a striking resemblance to the most famous frog of all time: Kermit.

The last time a new glass frog was discovered in Costa Rica was way back in 1973, predating the premiere of The Muppet Show!
