Scientists have discovered new frogs so tiny they can sit on a thumbnail.

The seven new frogs were discovered in the forests of the western coast of India.

They live on the forest floor and make insect-like calls at night. Scientists say there are a lot of these new frogs, and that they were likely overlooked because they are so small, their habitats are hard to find, and they don't make typical frog sounds.
