Asia’s tiniest frog, a creature the size of a pea, has been discovered in a national park in Malaysia’s Sarawak state on Borneo island, say researchers.

Herpetologist Indraneil Das said he and Hamburg University colleague Alexander Haas discovered the orange-and-red frog when returning from a field trip at the Kubah National Park in 2004.
