It is a weird looking creature. If you stare at it too long it is like it is trying to hypnotize you. I don't trust you Mr. Frog.

I wonder if anybody has tried licking it yet?

Great find Tripelsod.

Maybe you can lick it and get high?
Who knows, I'd probably tie a friend down and make them lick it to find out.
No, seriously.
I wonder if it's poisonous. Lol

I like you now, you are no longer a foe! That's some funny frogging poop right there.


Scientists have recently discovered a very strange breed of frog. It's a kind of "living fossil" whose great great grandparents lived during the time of the dinosaurs. The doughnut-shaped, purple frog was found in a "biodiversity hotspot" in the mountains of southern India. It is bloated and purple and has very tiny eyes. Look how small the head is.


Keep up the good froggin work!

This thread is from 2003 ^_^

But, I think someone posted a correct link earlier to an article which isn't there anymore. It is called a purple frog or a pignosed frog. It was mentioned in the article about unique frogs that I created this thread about.

en.wikipedia.org...



Nasikabatrachus sahyadrensis is a frog species belonging to the family Sooglossidae. It can be found in the Western Ghats in India. Common names for this species are Purple Frog or Pignose Frog. It was discovered in October 2003 and was found to be unique for the geographic region.

This article says that they found it in "the Western Ghats Mountains of Southern India."

It seems like it's found only in the Western Ghats.

Surinam Toads?

www.honoluluzoo.org...



With her back near the water surface, the female deposits 60 to 100 eggs. They are fertilized by the male and distributed over the back of the female. Eggs adhere and sink into the sponge-like dorsal skin. Within 24 hours, the female's back begins to swell around the eggs. By 10 days, each egg will be embedded in a chamber, producing a "honeycomb" on female's back. They remain on her back until fully metamorphosed (12 to 20 weeks), then push out through the membranes covering the pockets. Young are cannibalistic and have no gills or tails (reabsorbed during development).


Surinam toads are AWESOME!! I saw one at an aquarium recently.

It may be gross, but now you have that much more random information about animals to talk about at parties.
