No wonder it took a long time before it was discovered, Reinvardt’s tree frog is tiny.
The rainbow toad hasn’t been seen by human eyes for about 90 years, but it was recently rediscovered in a jungle in Borneo. There has never been a colour photo until now.
Ecuador is a country of great biodiversity (even if you don’t include the Galapagos Islands).
The Rio Pescado stubfoot toad can be found here, a very colorful and rare creature.
Frogs are amphibians and are able to live both underwater and on land. In order to do this they have very special skin; the skin of the frog produces a kind of oil for protection, as an ointment, in fact for many reasons.
This oil contains some very interesting and rare chemicals, some of which have been used for medical purposes.
This micro frog was recently found in Indonesia, on the island of Borneo. Even though it is small it makes a loud croak (that’s how it was found).
Frogs are very important animals.
There are about 5,000 species of frogs which we know about. But there are many that we still haven’t discovered.
This is a photo of a new species of frog, recently seen in Papua New Guinea; in fact it is so new that it doesn’t yet have a name.
