For a new species to go unrecognised for all this time in this area is amazing

Several years ago a new species of fly was discovered in one of the most-studied-by-entomologists places on Earth: the Canadian National Collection of insects. Not in the dead insect collection itself. You expect to find new species there. It was alive on a window, saying "I've been living here for centuries, why didn't any of the generations of entomologists notice me?"

Frogs in Staten Island? I thought that place was all Guidos & Micks.

Given all the crap that's been dumped in the water around there, are we sure it isn't just a mutation?

Having grown up on Staten Island I can assume you the frog is fine. It's the people who are the mutants.

Better be careful intrepid explorers, I hear there are still some potentially dangerous uncontacted native tribes in these areas.

Why aren't those scrapped?

An island effect (Surrounded by humans makes transportation difficult), unusual noises, and a prevalence of mutagenic chemicals may accelerate evolution? YOU DON'T SAY?!
