DARWIN'S FROG

Darwin's frog was named after Charles Darwin, who discovered it on his world voyage.  

This frog lives in the cool forest streams of South America, mostly in Argentina and Chile.  

What makes this frog interesting? The way it takes care of it’s tadpoles! The female lays the eggs, about 30 of them, and then the male guards them for about 2 weeks.  The male picks up all the survivors and carries around the developing young in his vocal pouch.  That’s right…in his throat!  The tadpoles finish developing in the chin skin.  When they are tiny froglets they hop out and swim away!
