The Mysterious Glass Frog by Charlie B.

By October 29, 2019

The glass frog, who is only one to three inches long, is an incredible amphibian. If you turn the glass frog upsidedown, you can see his beating heart, intestines, and veins right through his transparent skin. Amazingly, in his rainforest home, he is the highest jumping frog and can jump and reach over 6,000 feet in one jump. That sounds almost like flying? The glass frog helps our ecosystem by eating tones of bugs every day. Can you imagine how many mosquitoes bites Rainforest animals would have without him? With his good eyesight, tinted green clear skin, and nocturnal ways, he avoids being eaten by predators. The glass frog is truly a wonderous creature of the jungle.
