Some scientists find the latest Leopard frog species in the area of New York, USA. They found it in front of amphibians StatenIsland. Interestingly, these frogs actually live in dense urban areas, compared to frogs in general are more fun to live in rural and remote areas.
The researchers had difficulty in identifying the frog, because its characteristics are very similar to the Southern Leopard frog. For that, they take a long time to establish it as a species of frog new findings. However, so far the identification of new species have been declared in the State Island.
Doctoral Ecology and Evolution Rutgers University, JeremyFeinberg said, the frog is likely to inhabit other areas of the city at a time. He also found examples of trials in New Jersey and Northern New York.
Feiberg have sent DNA samples to the frog biologist Catherine E. Newman. This is to compare the findings with frog Leopard frog North and South. The results show, this frog is genetically different from other Leopard frogs.
“From the observations, these frogs have a different genetic with other frogs,” said Feiberg.
To date, Rutgers University scientists are still not getting the proper name for the frog. ”I still consider the proper name so as not to protests from residents of New Jersey,” added Feiberg.
