Researchers names newly discovered Rainfrog in Panama after Climate Activist Greta Thunberg
A team of researchers have named a new species of rainfrog, discovered in the tropical rainforests of Panama, after Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg.
The tiny rainfrog species has been named as Pristimantis gretathunbergae, or simply known as the Greta Thunberg Rainfrog.
The unique known species of frog was discovered in 2012 in Panama’s Mount Chucantí by an international team led by Dr Abel Batista and Dr Konrad Mebert and was thought to be part of already categorised Pristimantis family.
In 2018, through DNA analysis the team confirmed that the frog is a new species.
