Glass Frogs – The Amazing See Through Wonder
Oh Hai One More Time!
I just ran across a rather amazing creature known as the glass frog. These tiny little doods have transparent skin along their abdomen that allows you to see all the internal organs. Crazy. It is amazing what mother nature can do. They are an endangered species, but apparently a recent scientific excursion to Ecuador uncovered more of these amazing little creatures along with some other oddities and never before scene species. For more information on the expedition read the following article See Through Frogs.
A similar see through frog was created by Japanese scientists in a lab. These frogs were created as a learning tool. So generations of kids would no longer have to dissect frogs in Junior High School Biology. Instead they can study the frogs internal organs simply by observing a live transparent frog. Some sticky scientific questions arise with the manipulation of a frogs DNA to make it see through, but they certainly are interesting questions. Myself, I would rather let nature create these amazing animals. Nature does it better than any laboratory ever could.
