All hail the new transparent frog

Japanese scientists have created this cute-as-a-bug see-thru froggy.
200709211459-1 the transparent frog is the result of breeding two specimens of Japanese brown frog (Rana japonica) that had a genetic mutation giving them pale skin. By selectively breeding their offspring, the researchers were able to create a frog that remains transparent for its entire life cycle. Most of the world’s known transparent creatures live underwater, and transparent four-legged animals are extremely rare.


  1. HANG ON. Follow the link. Scientists at HIROSHIMA University created a see through frog. They reckon they’ve got a glowing one as well.

    I reckon scientists at Oak Ridge and Los Alamos were probably responsible for it.

    Just like they were responsible for Godzilla :)
