A new poisonous frog was recently discovered by scientists in a remote mountainous region of Colombia. The frog, which measures almost 0.8 inches (2 centimeters) in length and has yellowish skin, was named the "golden frog of Supatá." The newly-discovered frog belongs to group called poison dart frogs, scientists said. It is unique and found only within a 20-hectare area in Colombia's Cundinamarca region.

The finding was made as part of a survey supported by the Conservation Leadership Programme, a joint effort by BP, Birdlife International, Fauna & Flora International, Conservation International and the Wildlife Conservation Society.
