A new species of tiny, neon orange toadlets was discovered in the mountains of Brazil. They’re just under an inch and part of the pumpkin toadlet genus, a collection of tiny, bright-colored toads, according to a study published Wednesday in PLOS ONE. These toadlets are poisonous and fluorescent, which can be seen with UV light, said study author Ivan Nunes, professor in the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences at São Paulo State University in Brazil.
