A search of Colombia's forests has revealed three new amphibians, conservation researchers reported Monday.

Led by Robin Moore of Conservation International, the three new species discovered by the team turned up in a search for a beaked toad not seen since World War I.

"Finding three new species in such a short space of time speaks to the incredibly rich biodiversity of these relatively unexplored forests and highlights their importance for conservation," Moore said, in the statement.
