Episode 284:Glassy Glass Frogs

June 29, 2022

An absolute unique wonder of the natural world is the Glass Frog. These species of amphibian that are native to South and Central America, are characterized with undersides that are actually "see-through" and "translucent" and "transparent." This means when looking up at them, you can see their digestive system, bones, eggs, blood vessels and an actual heart beating. We answer all about this phenomenon and why exactly glass frogs evolved this way. Another important topic of this week's podcast is the plight of the many amphibians from around the world. Nearly 43% of all amphibian species are in serious decline and endangered of extinction. These animals, these frogs, all deserve our love, support, and understanding.
