Introducing the Darwin's Frog that is native to streams and forests of Chile and Argentina. It is possible this species is now extinct. It has not been seen since 1981. This tiny frog species (approx. 3.5 cm/1.4" in length) got its name after explorer Charles Darwin. He discovered the frog during his "Voyage of the Beagle".
Darwin's Frog is able to camouflage itself on the forest floor, thanks to its evolving look like a dried-up leaf. The Northern Darwin’s frog exhibits ‘mouth brooding’ parental care, whereby the young undergo part of their development in the father’s mouth until the metamorphosis process is complete.
CollectA’s Darwin’s Frog is a great model of the jumping endangered amphibian. It is painted predominantly green with some yellow hues, and a mottled brown face and underside. Its body is covered in spotty, wart-like detailing and its big yellow and black eye ensures he’s on high alert for any flies that buzz by. Let this little guy hop right into your heart.
