Some Frogs and Toads are just weird…

Thanks to one of my favorites blogs, Zooillogix, I recently got to see toads giving live birth from their back and frogs without lungs. I must say, amphibians are weird! But do those frogs really count as amphibians…? And honestly, those toads gross me out a bit — and that’s hard for biology to do to me!

Their live birth from their back looks exactly like the Gremlins in Gremlins II. I always loved that scene.

Nature is amazing, isn’t it?
