Kermit the Frog is Real

To a child, the notion that Kermit the frog is a real live creature would be the obvious conclusion, but recently scientist have discovered a live Kermit the frog doppelganger. Of course, this frog doesn’t sing the ABCs and have Pig as a girlfriend, but it does have the lime-green skin and buggy white eyes with horizontal black pupils that we all knew and loved as children.
Diane’s Bare-hearted Glass frog (Hyalinobatrachium dianae) was recently discovered in the tropical Caribbean slopes of Costa Rica around 400 to 900 meters above sea level near the land that Bulletproof Coffee is born. So little is known about this frog that it doesn’t even have a proper Wikipedia page. What we do know is that the frog has a glass underbelly that is so clear that it bears it heart, along with other internal organs, for the whole world to see. Also, the frog’s mating call has been described as “a single tonal long metallic whistle-like note.” I don’t know about you, but that reminds me of Kermit and Miss. Piggy’s tear-jerking song in Muppet Treasure Island.
