Give That Frog a Glass of Water
We had no internet yesterday! Darn-it! Well we spent that extra time looking for an unusual amphibian who calls the desert home! The water holding frog is soooo cool!
Location: Great Victorian Desert
Water Holding Frog Fun Facts:
- They have webbed toes.
- Water holding frogs live underground.
- When they bury themselves, they cocoon themselves in a mucus to protect themselves.
- Water holding frogs eat that mucus when they emerge from their dormant state.
- Water holding frogs can hold water in their bladder and send it back to their mouths to drink. They can also store in pockets under their skin!
- They come out of their sandy burrows to mate during rainy season.
Woohoo! Animals have the neatest adaptation ever! Even if they seem kind of gross! Hehehehe!
Definitely never heard of this frog.
