Without getting political, we can honestly say this particular discovery was made in India. And yes, it is saffron.

An orange-bellied frog with a brown back that is covered in tiny spots has been discovered in the southern range of the Deccan plateau, surprising scientists. After coming across a few specimens in the middle of the night during an expedition in the Western Ghats, the researchers, part of a joint US-India team, determined that they had in fact found a species thought to be lost millions of years ago.
