Micro-Frog Discovered in Pitcher Plants!
Indraneil Das/ Institute of Biodiversity and Environmental Conservation
Scientists have recently discovered a tiny frog that lives inside tropical pitcher plants (Nepenthes). Found only in Borneo, these frogs are the smallest known species in the Old World. Fully grown, these frogs measure a mere .4-.5 inches, and had previously been thought to be juveniles of another species.
The frogs lay their eggs on the inside walls of tropical pitcher plants, and their tadpoles live and mature inside the pitcher’s digestive liquid. Because of their extremely close relationship with these carnivorous Nepenthes, the frogs have been named Microhyla nepenthicola.
Help Save Carnivorous Plants From Extinction!
Meadowview Biological Research Station is seeking to purchase 5 acres of land in Virginia to prevent the extinction of the only known purple pitcher plants in the state. There are only 2 known specimens, and they are critically in danger of perishing if action is not taken.
Meadowview has entered the Pepsi Refresh Project, and hopes to be 1 of 10 projects to receive a $50,000 grant. This is an extremely worthy cause, and you can go HERE to vote. You can vote daily, and we encourage you to do so.
