New species of Papua New Guinea frog changes colour
By Jody Bourton

A new species of frog undergoes a remarkable transformation as it grows into an adult, report scientists.
Shiny black juvenile frogs with yellow spots dramatically change into peach coloured adults with bright blue eyes.
Scientists discovered the unique frog in a remote part of Papua New Guinea.
The bright pattern of the young frog could act as a warning colouration to predators, they say, but it is a mystery why the adult then loses this colour.
The obviously unusual biology of this frog made its discovery especially exciting

After metamorphosising from a tadpole, some frogs change in colour as they get older.
However, it is unknown for juveniles and adults of a species to have strikingly different colour and pattern schemes.
The research team came across the new species of frog Oreophryne ezra while on a expedition to find new species on Sudest Island, Louisiade Archipelago, off the south-eastern tip of New Guinea.
Of the new species they found, the frog particularly caught their attention.
