Scientists have discovered a rare frog in Indonesia that gives birth to live tadpoles, researchers report in a journal article published this week.
Herpatologist Jim McGuire found proof this summer that the frog, one of a group of roughly 25 species in Indonesia that have two fangs used for fighting, lays not eggs or even live froglets but live tadpoles. It’s the only frog species in the world to do so.
McGuire found the frogs on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. He named to the species Limnonectes larvaepartus.

Veronica Rutledge’s family are more interested in defending her right to carry the gun that ended her life and ruined the future of her two year old son than they are about the actual loss of life.
Sure, Veronica had the right to carry a gun. She also had the right to die and she did. But what about her son’s rights? He had no say in becoming the murderer of his own mother at the age of what? Two years old? 24 months old? Really?
Her husband also exercised his right to buy his wife a purse that was “made” for carrying guns. This was his christmas gift to her when they were both aware of their 2 year old living among them.
Now this two year old will grow up only to remember that he is the killer of his own mother.
Rutledge had a concealed weapons permit. Miller said the young boy was left in a shopping cart, reached into his mother’s purse and grabbed a small-calibre handgun, which discharged one time.
Deputies who responded to the Walmart found Rutledge dead, the sheriff’s office said.
This is not what Santa wanted. This is not what I meant by “peas on earth“.
Anyone who considers a gun purse for a mother of a two year old a nice Christmas gift needs to have their heads examined.
Humans! Please evolve and TRY to find interest in hobbies that are less violent, please. Try knitting for a week. Try yoga! Have any of you down south ever considered tea tasting or an organic cleanse? Guns are not toys. Guns do not have happy endings. Guns are not biodegradable.
Find out where the next march is and get involved. Change is coming and if you look in the eyes of the protesters you can see that they will not back down. Not this time. This is one world.

These guys can really help you clean up your act. Take a clue here. Get a beaver for your backyard and yeah, sure he’ll make one lardy ole’ fart of a mess, but he’s going to save you from global warming!
Or you could go after the real bad guys who are making all those beavers work so hard to swallow up that carbon dioxide!
Make art on me! Make music! Make love! Make cherry pie!
The prevalence of twins among elephants is said to be exceedingly rare, with studies suggesting it occurs 0.5 percent of the time. Dr. Ian Whyte, an elephant specialist who worked in South Africa’s Kruger National Park, said in a press release, “Though a few cases of twinning have been reported in the Kruger National Park, an examination of the reproductive tracts of over 1,200 adult cows culled in the Kruger National Park during population control operations did not yield a single case of twins.” Click on this blue link to read the whole story on Yahoo News.
