Frogs Are Green :: The 10 Weirdest and Most Unusual Frogs on Earth

 

So yesterday, I noticed a post about the Glass Frog from facebook’s I F-ing Love Science (they post some fabulously interesting stuff).

How cool is that thing?! In my quest to find more information on them, I found this link:

The 10 Weirdest and Most Unusual Frogs on Earth | Frogs Are Green.

I love weird things.

Food for thought: does the skin of the glass toad (probably already fragile like the absorptive skin of other amphibians) leave them even more susceptible to infection or parasitism?
