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:

    An old pond—
    a frog tumbles in—
    the sound of water.
    Matsuo Basho (1644–1694)

    From the war of nature, from famine and death, the most exalted object which we are capable of conceiving, namely, the production of the higher animals, directly follows. There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.
    —Charles Darwin (1809–1882)
