A “Pinocchio frog” is among a handful of newly-discovered species found in the Foja Mountains of Indonesia, a group of scientists announced on Monday. Despite its proboscis, the frog, in fact, cannot tell a lie.

In a few short weeks in these pristine rain  forests on the island of New Guinea, an international survey team  uncovered at least a dozen new mammals,  reptiles,  amphibians,  insects,  and birds—including  a Pinocchio-like  frog and the world’s smallest wallaby.
Many of the animals are  found nowhere else but in the Foja mountaintops, whose inaccessibility  has allowed the species to evolve in isolation—prompting the region’s  nickname: the Lost World.

I say we call them Anura tumblrica.
