The Frog That Glows in the Dark Found in Argentina!

According to a media report world’s first fluorescent frog has been discovered in the Amazon basin in Argentina. Scientists at the Bernardino Rivadavia Natural Sciences Museum in Buenos Aires made the discovery by accident while studying the pigments of polka-dots tree frog.

In normal light the frog appears to have a dull, mottled brown-green skin with red dots, but under UV light it glows a bright fluorescent green. The discovery opens up the possibility that other amphibians which have translucent skin like tree frog may also be able to fluoresce.

    I would love one of these in my room in a terrarium, of course! I could turn on a blacklight and see it glow!
