Not where you would expect to find a new amphibian
Rana kauffeldi is a type of leopard frog with no common name, and nothing particularly attention grabbing distinguishing it from other leopard frogs.
So what makes it bizarre? It was found on Staten Island, New York, 2008. Not exactly the unexplored jungles of Borneo and possibly one of the last place in the world you would expect to find a new vertebrate species.
It was first collected on Staten Island but can be found from Conneticut to North Carolina.
