The species was claimed as the worldÃ¢€™s smallest invertebrate on Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2012. Austin was studying the areaÃ¢€™s rich biodiversity when he and graduate student Eric Rittmeyer found the frog, which they named Paedophyryne amauensis for the village of Amau. The frog out-tinied a Sumatran carp identified in 2006. Its discovery was reported Wednesday in the journal PLoS ONE. (AP Photo/Louisiana State University, Christopher Austin) -
