Today I want to write about a frog with a very funny name, Bob’s robber frog.
Here are five interesting facts about them:
- The males of this species grow to about 5 cm long and the females grow to almost 8 cm long. The males call loudly for females, especially after rain.
- I don’t know why they are called robber frogs and I don’t know who Bob is.
- They are semi-aquatic, meaning that they are equally at home on land or in the water.
- Babies don’t hatch as tadpoles, but as fully formed little frogs.
- Bob’s robber frogs are found in fast moving streams in the forests of western and central Panama. They are endangered due to a really bad fungus that has killed most of them in the wild. Thankfully, there are a few captive breeding programs keeping these special frogs alive for the future.
I hope that you found these facts interesting and learned something new.
