24 new species found in Suriname

According to a story today posted by Reuters, a purple fluorescent frog is just one of 24 new species found in Suriname, a country in the northern part of South Africa.

According to Leeanne Alonso of Conservation International, which led the expedition that found the new species, "When you go to these places that are so unexplored and so remote, we do tend to find new species ... but most of them are insects. What's really exciting here is we found a lot of new species of frogs and fish as well."
