Frog to the Guts

The Hyalinobatrachium pellucidum, also known as the glass frog or see-through frog, is a species that lives in Ecuador. This one-of-a-kind frog has transparent flesh to the point where you can see its guts. Although its features are quite distinct, these frogs are rare to find because they are about the size of a fingernail. They are also endangered, so not many of them have been found; however scientists from Conservation International recently rediscovered one in the Nangaritza Protected Forest in Ecuador.
