I never knew that some frogs go from eggs to "froglets"!!..I thought they always went through the tadpole stage! I know and am glad to have grown a new braincell today!!..I am also very happy to hear of a new species, as so many have become extict in Panama and are endangered at this time!..Maybe they have evolved and their residual dye will protect them from what is killing off so many others!?!

They must be a brand-new species - their ink isn't even dry!

Oooh, and I love that bubble-throat stud! I'm sure he gets all the girls!

Thanks Cal!

Kye - Lots of animals end up on the dinner plate in Australia, the UK, USA, etc.. People in the USA would probably want to capture the frogs and keep them in small cages as "exotic pets"!
