Darwin's Frog

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:

    In almost all climes the tortoise and the frog are among the precursors and heralds of this season, and birds fly with song and glancing plumage, and plants spring and bloom, and winds blow, to correct this slight oscillation of the poles and preserve the equilibrium of nature.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The highest possible stage in moral culture is when we recognize that we ought to control our thoughts.
    —Charles Darwin (1809–1882)
