Good things came in small packages for a team of scientists who recently discovered seven new species of tiny frogs in Brazil‘s Atlantic rain forest.
The new species belong to the genus Brachycephalus, a group of frogs known for their miniscule size and bright colors. These amphibians are among the smallest terrestrial vertebrates, with some species only growing to about about 0.3 inch (a centimeter) long.
