New Tiny Friends Found in S. Costa Rica

January 11, 2008

Three previously unknown species of salamanders were discovered in Costa Rica’s La Amistad National Park, near the border with Panama, U.K. scientists announced Friday.

Two are about the size of a pinky – one with a bold red stripe, one with a “ballistic” tongue that it propels at its prey – and the third is smaller than a fingernail. All three are probably unique to the remote rain forest reserve, Alex Monro of London’s Natural History Museum told National Geographic Traveler.
