Evolutionary Success

Some frogs make this blog too easy, such as this glyphoglossus molossus (balloon frog from Asia). Frogs come in such variety and are found in so many habitats, yet they seem to be such an unlikely candidate for evolutionary success.

If I were asked to design an animal that could thrive in almost any terrestrial environment, it sure wouldn't look anything like a frog or a toad. Mine would look like Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Thanks for the link, Rasmus.
