Blue frog

dendrobates azureus
dendrobates azureus is the real name

There are green frogs, orange frogs, red and yellow frogs, purple frogs, and even translucent frogs and now you can see a blue frog.

Many species of frog are in danger, it is thought that about half of all frog species will soon be extinct. There are two reasons: loss of habitat, and a disease that is spreading to  frogs all round the world.

The frog’s skin contains a protective oil, and in this oil can be found some incredible chemicals. Now one of these chemicals is used to treat cancer.
