You may see some insects here and there but there’s only one frog in this illustration. The Paedophryne amauensis is recognized as the smallest frog and probably the smallest vertebrate in the world. Found in Papua New Guinea, it is so difficult to detect since it spends most of its time camouflaged in the forest floor. It does not go through the tadpole stage in its lifetime and are born as “hoppers”. These froggies can jump 30 times its length! Have you found it?

Give up? Here’s the solution: http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e360/revcruz/AngInK/Paedophrynecol-sol_zps891f70d8.jpg and http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e360/revcruz/AngInK/Paedophrynecol-zoom_zps1ec20d61.jpg . Well, that is more or less the actual size of the Paedophryne amauensis.
