SYDNEY (Reuters) - An Australian biologist and Vietnamese colleagues have made a surprise discovery - a new species of flying frog gliding and jumping around less than 100 km from one of Southeast Asia's busiest cities.

Jodi Rowley and her team were conducting an amphibian survey between two patches of lowland forest in the middle of agricultural land criss-crossed by farmers and water buffalo each day, some 90 km (56 miles) from Ho Chi Minh City, when they made their find.

"And...there on a log just sitting on the side of the path was this huge green flying frog," said Rowley, amphibian biologist at the Australian Museum.
