No transparent frog

It was in the news all over the world, but wonder why at NextNature.net we have not mentioned the 'invention' of the transparent frog before? Probably because we think the frog is not transparent at all. It has no pigment, that is true, but neither do albinos, jellyfish or some species of plastic bags.

Little research learns us that nature itself produced a family of species called Centrolenidae, of which some members are transparent as well: the Glass Frogs. Now there is a clear sight! No chemicals. πŸ™‚

Oh well here is a little credit to the scientists who made it possible to study the organs without cutting the amphibian: Rrribbit!

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
