Still Waters

Humans are forever trying to get their rear ends to look either smaller or bigger, but nothing we do—nothing—can make our cabooses as amazing as that of the Cuyaba dwarf frog, or Physalaemus nattereri.

Yet this frog’s glamorous hindquarters are meant to repel attention, not attract it.

We looked into why such a wonderfully weird amphibian is left alone, by both people and predators.

There are about 123 known species of frogs worldwide with warning colors, known as aposematic coloration, on the back or underside of their bodies..
