Darwin's Frog (Rhinoderma darwinii) is a frog native to the forest streams of Chile and Argentina. It was first described by French Zoologist André Marie Constant Duméril and his assistant Gabriel Bibron, and is named after Charles Darwin who discovered it in Chile during his world voyage on the HMS Beagle.
The most striking feature is the way the tadpoles are raised—inside the vocal sac of the male.

Famous quotes containing the words frog and/or darwin:
“What a wonderful bird the frog are
When he stand he sit almost;
When he hop, he fly almost.
He aint got no sense hardly;
He aint got no tail hardly either.
When he sit, he sit on what he aint got almost.”
—Unknown. The Frog (l. 16)
“Natural selection, the blind, unconscious, automatic process which Darwin discovered, and which we now know is the explanation for the existence and apparently purposeful form of all life, has no purpose in mind. It has no mind and no minds eye. It does not plan for the future. It has no vision, no foresight, no sight at all. If it can be said to play the role of the watchmaker in nature, it is the blind watchmaker.”
—Richard Dawkins (b. 1941)
