Default Big Discovery

I imagine that discovering one new species of animal would be a relatively big deal, but 200? Evidently over 200 new species of frogs have been discovered in Madagascar, suggesting that the island is even more of a sanctuary for various animals than previously thought.

This, of course, has not stopped the Madagascar government from allowing huge swaths of forest to be clear-cut from the jungles where these animals live.

These frogs probably don't make great pets, but it's still pretty incredible that scientists are still discovering so many new species of any animal at one time.
