Surinam Toad

Surinam Toad (Pipa sp) are some of the oddest members of the Anurans (tailless amphibians) a group that is known for oddness. One of the distinguishing features of Surinam toads is that the incubation of the young occurs in the skin on the mother’s back. In some species, the young hatch as tadpoles, in others as fully formed froglets.

The hatching process can be quite disturbing. Watch the video at your own risk. I am not responsible for lost lunches.

Even god cancelled evolution when he watched.
