The Plant-hopper looks amazing, and obviously since it is newly discovered, then it is either not yet named, looking for a name, or newly named. either ways, I just hope they pick an easy and fascinating name for it as much as it's looks fascinated me

I bet if they look closely they will find the whipped cream frog there too

I would love to see this area to remain pristine, preserved and unexploited.  What can we do?

The Amazon rainforest is today a vast laboratory for sustainable experiments that are unveiling new relationships among human beings, corporations and this natural heritage that is crucial for life on the planet. This is where the guidelines are being drawn up for a new global economic model: the green economy. But how much are the services really worth, rendered to humankind by this invisible commodity? And who should profit from this? Seeking for replies, this film showcases successful initiatives, exploring possibilities with specialists and plunging into a sensuous journey through the daily lives of these rainforest dwellers.

This is wonderful to read. There have been a few new creatures or animals come to light in recent months. It gives both hope and fear. A hope that all is not lost in this world with some becoming distinct but new ones coming to light. But will there be an ocean or a rainforest for them to live in? Everything is being cut down or spoiled by humans. Thank you for the photos.
