Some frogs are nothing like the common variety we’re used to. Hairy frogs will go as far as breaking their bones to unleash a hidden ace up their sleeve.
Puncturing right through their toes are sharp claws which the frogs use as a last line of defense, and that is where they also get the name “Wolverine frogs.”
Males of the genus also produce long hair-like strands of skin and arteries when they breed. The ‘hairs’ allow them to take in more oxygen through their skin while taking care of their brood.
