A lungless frog
Who found the frog?
Two scientists, David Bickford and Djoko Iskandar
have found the second tetrapod without lungs in its body. The first was the salamander.
What kind of frog is it?
The first frog found is called the lungless frog, scientific name "Barbourula kalimantensis"
They can breathe using their skin and using the water they live in
Why should we help the frogs population increase?
The frog was found in about 1978 but in further expeditions, many more were found.
The young frogs
Young frogs found 30 years later.
4 of 9 frogs found in the time
The tadpoles are really small.
Chances of ever seeing a ta- dpole would be, I say about 10% chance to less.
They soon will be in its grave
Island of Borneo, Indonesia
