New Lizard, Frog Species Discovered in Australian Rainforest
Finding a new species in areas relatively unexplored is surprising, but discovering three previously undocumented species in a place as well trodden as Australia is rare indeed. Scientists have found a master in camouflage, the Leaf-Tailed Gecko, a leaping golden skink isolated to the rainforest and a frog that breeds in the rain. All of the discoveries were made in Cape Melville on the northern tip of Queensland by a joint expedition between James Cook University and National Geographic. The area has remained relatively unexplored because of large boulders covering the plateau, but more expeditions are sure to follow.
