A new species of frog was discovered in Vietnam by Jodi Rowley of the Australian Museum. The adults have webbed feet, which they use to glide; this helps them to live high up in trees. The tadpoles of this species have black fangs and are the first fanged tadpoles known to science. Find out about this discovery here and here.
