Politicians Are Poody Heads

Squeaky Frog

on February 22, 2013

This tiny frog’s “mighty war cry” is intended to ward off predators and attract mates, reports GrindTV, but it’s probably just going to make you say “awww.”

Although it’s been widely identified in the news as a Namaqua rain frog, frog expert (unfortunate professional title: herpetologist) Alan Channing has identified it as a desert rain frog.

I’m pretty sure Mr. Channing knows what he’s talking about, as he’s actually one of the assessors list on the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN), which lists the desert rain frog, or Breviceps macrops, as “vulnerable” on its Red List of Threatened Species.

Link.

“Awww” is right.

Also, check out the video on Raw Story showing different peoples’ pets reactions to the squeaky frog video.  Too cute!
