New discoveries in New Guinea

Biologists exploring the remote Foja Mountains of western New Guinea in Indonesia have discovered several new species, including this frog, which they named after Pinocchio; the world's smallest known kangaroo; a large woolly rat; a three-colored pigeon; and a gargoylly yellow-eyed gecko.

The interesting thing about the Pinocchio-nosed frog is its nose doesn't just hang there.  It sticks out like Pinocchio's nose when it calls for a mate, inflating like most frogs' throats.  Make your own entendres.
