It’s a very spectacular animal whose appearance include an enlarged nose. It faces downwards to prevent dust from escaping through the nostrils.

It must have grown suspicion from scientists that the enthusiastic business is a means of communication between themselves or a mark of territory or something.

This frog is however little, but its ability to be see-through mesmerize the entire universe. You can see its internal organs without dissecting it in the laboratory; this is due to its translucent underside.

It is self-explanatory, this is a reptile, the family of crocodiles. It’s mostly found in the waterways of India, adapted to catch fish. It has a long nose with 110 teeth to attack its prey. Its estimated population around the world is slightly above double the number of teeth one has.
