Looks like Kermit The Frog may have found his rainbow connection ... in Costa Rica.
A newly-discovered frog from Costa Rica shares an uncanny resemblance with Jim Henson’s most famous Muppet, Kermit The Frog. Brian Kubicki, of the Costa Rican Amphibian Research Center came across the new species of glass frog while exploring the country’s tropical rainforests.
With bright lime green skin and big white eyes there is a lot attention being paid to the Kermit look-a-like and that’s more than fine with Kubicki. He told CBS News, “I think it is great that this species is getting so much attention around the world.” ABC is currently developing a new television show for the Muppets.
