God seems to love variety. This is evident in the animal kingdom. Newly discovered miniature frogs illustrate this tendency. A report in Live Science states:

“Scientists have uncovered seven new species of teeny-tiny frogs, each smaller than a thumbnail, in the Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest. The miniature frogs live on isolated mountaintops in the cloud forests."

The article goes on to say:

The brightly colored little frogs are all part of the genus Brachycephalus, a group known since the 1800s to inhabit the cloud forests of southern Brazil.”

Compared to bigger frogs, they are really tiny. But they are unmistakably frogs. They are evidence of the after its kind principle introduced in the Book of Genesis.

According to evolutionary storytelling, our ancestors were once frogs, but there is no real evidence for this.

The animal kingdom displays the handiwork of God.
