Borneo researchers have just discovered the world's smallest frogs, scientifically named Microhyla Nepenthicola. The frogs are recent discoveries and they are literally pea-sized which is as big as the frogs will ever get.

The images in the featured gallery demonstrate just how small these little guys are compared to everyday items like a penny and the tip of pencil. The Microhyla Nepenthicola are cute little creatures that defy science.

Implications - While these frogs may be misplaced easily, they would make the perfect pet or accessory for dolls in a dollhouse. If you're someone obsessed with miniature, micro-size creations, these small frogs may be the perfect pet for you. My only concern is that people neglect their needs due to their miniscule size.
