What the freak is that see-through greeny?

“The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.”

Literally. Look at his stomach.

You’re looking at a glass frog. By glass frog, I don’t mean a glass model of a frog – this is an actual living creature called the “glass frog.”

I’m kind of the coolest.

You may think this creature fragile because you can actually see its heart and internal organs, and you would be right, but glass frogs are fearless protectors of their young.

Females attach their eggs to the underside of leaves and the males are on guard-duty 24/7, until they hatch. A wasp gets too close? That’s a frog kick to the face. A snake in need of a snack? Frog kick to the face. Also a dead frog, but you win some, you lose some.

This is my best side.

Guarding the eggs isn’t the father’s only duty. He must keep the eggs moist. Rain will usually take care of that, but in the event of a dry spell, he’ll cover the clutch with his moist body, and worst case, he’ll pee on them. A dad’s gotta do what a dad’s gotta do.
