Frog that gives birth to tadpoles found

Thu, Jan 01, 2015, 03:19 PM
New York, Jan 1: The female of a new species of frog gives birth to live tadpoles instead of laying eggs, a researcher from University of California-Berkley (UCB) has discovered in the rain forests of Indonesia's Sulawesi Island.

A member of the Asian group of fanged frogs, the new species named Limnonectes larvaepartus was discovered a few decades ago by Indonesian researcher Djoko Iskandar.

It was thought to give direct birth to tadpoles though the frog's mating and an actual birth had never been observed before.

The findings appeared in the journal PLOS ONE.
