Spanish Frog

We took a drive down to the South of Spain early this summer. There was not a great deal going on down there as far as photos were concerned but we did meet this rather regal looking chap. I think he is an Iberian painted frog.

He is pretty cool but not quite as exotic as these guys who were discovered in Ecuador a few years ago. The link is to a New Scientist article about an expedition which uncovered various new species, including a Glass frog with a see through chest through which you can watch his beating heart. Just when you thought nature couldn’t get any stranger!
