Purple Crabs, Tiny Frogs and a Giant Crocodile

Kermit the Frog

2 new frogs were found in Leyte Island's Nacolod mountain range. They are a mottled brown frog with red eyes and a broad yellow stripe running down its back, and a yellow green one not much bigger than a human thumb that looks a lot like Kermit the Frog!!!

Mr. Krabs

A freshwater purple crab was discovered in the lowland forest of Palawan by Hendrik Freitag of Germany's Senckenberg Museum of Zoology.  He looks so much like Mr. Krabs, right?!  It has been listed as belonging to the Insulamon species.


A 6.4 meter crocodile was found in a farming town in Agusan del Sur province, bigger than the Australian crocodile (5 meters)that used to be the largest in captivity.  The Philippine crocodile named 'Lolong' has been declared the largest in captivity.  Reminds me of Godzilla, yikes!
