Species Of Frog

Based on my research, there are ten of the most bizarre frogs in the world.
Frog Rain
Malagasy rainbow frog is a frog who lived in Madagascar's dry forest rocky Isalo Massif, where they breed in shallow temporary pools that are found in the valley. This type is also adapting to climbing within miles, and even on vertical surfaces! When threatened, this frog will develop themselves as a defense mechanism against predators.

Transparent frog
Hyalinobatrachium pellucidum, also called glass or crystal frog because man can see through the transparent flesh. This type is not new, but certainly endangered, so this is exciting for the range of findings.

Atelopus frog
Atelopus frogs, known to many names such as harlequin frogs or Costa Rica Variable Harlequin Toad. Frogs, is kind of neo-tropical frogs that used to live quite widely distributed throughout Costa Rica and Panama. This species is critically endangered and is now only a little, especially left only in Panama.


Smallest frog in the world
This frog found in the southern Peruvian Andes Mountains, with a height between 9925 and 10,466 feet above the surface lau

 The world's Largest Frog
Goliath frogs or Conraua goliath frog is the largest remaining species on Earth. This frog can grow to 13 inches (33 cm) long from snout to tail, and weight to 8 lbs (3 kg). This frog has a relatively small habitat range, especially in West Africa (near Gabon). Goliath frog can live up to 15 years. Goliath frogs eat scorpions, insects and small frogs.  

These frogs have sharp hearing, but no vocal sac.

Mantel Red Frog
have a red mantle orange / red in the dorsal surface / body. This small frog, reaching the size of 2.5 cm (1 in.) in length. This measurement is small, this frog is a frog native land Madagascar.

Poisonous frogs
Poisonous frogs in colors like sapphire blue, is the common name of a group of frog in the Dendrobatidae family, which is native frogs of Central and South America. Unlike most frogs, the species is active during the day, and often show light-colored body. Although all dendrobatids at least somewhat toxic in the wild, the level of toxicity varies from one species to the next and from one population to another. Many species are critically endangered. Amphibian is often called a "frog bow" by the native indian by the use of their toxic secretions to poison the tip of panahnya.


frog pillow
Pillow frog can grow to six inches long and live in Uruguay, Brazil, and northern Argentina. Although it may look like bearing silent, but the frogs were quick in attack lizards, small rodents, birds, other frogs.


Darwin's frog
Darwin's frogs regularly appear quite chili until around 1978, but no longer, and it seems to have disappeared, and now probably extinct species. This species, which live in leaf litter on the forest floor, has an unusual method in terms of coaching his sons, the male taking eggs from nests to the vocal sac where they hatch into tadpole after about eight days. When starting the newly hatched tadpole feel stretched-geliat, bull frogs took them to the river where they release the young frogs, where they settle metamorfosisnya.

 Vietnam frog
Theloderma corticale, or Vietnamese mossy frog, the frog species in the family Rhacophoridae. This frog found in Vietnam and possibly China. Natural habitat of the lowland forests of subtropical or tropical moist, living in fresh water, and rocky area. Frequency of mossy frogs arises from the fact that the skin spots that resemble green and black algae growing on rocks, and effective form of camouflage or disguise.
