Two weeks ago, I wrote a brief introduction to the world of freaky frogs. But back then, we barely scratched the surface. Today, we’re well and truly diving into the deep end – of Lake Titicaca to be precise. Covering 8,372 square km, straddling the border between Peru and Bolivia, this is the largest lake in South America.
Here at The Nature Nook, we just love frogs and toads. We think they are fantastic – and, in many cases, a little freaky. After all, there are frogs out there that raise their tadpoles in their vocal sacs. Frogs that can survive being frozen solid. A frog that was used as an early pregnancy test. A toad whose young erupt from their mother’s back.
