Wildlife researcher Brian Kubicki of the Costa Rican Amphibian Research Center has discovered a new species of glass frog that looks strikingly similar to the famous muppet, Kermit the Frog.

In a recently published paper, Kubicki details the new species, officially known as Hyalinobatrachium dianae. It is the first glass frog discovered in Costa Rica since 1973. According to the Tico Times, six specimens of the new frog were found in the western provinces of Limón and Heredia in the Talamanca mountain range.
