Here is your purple things in nature fact of the day. The Indian purple frog was discovered in 2003 and doesn’t just look unlike any other frog, it IS unlike them, having split off from a common ancestor approximately 130 million years ago. The frog shocked biologists into awarding it status as a new species in a wholly new family of amphibians. It is a representative of the first new family of amphibians to be discovered since 1926. Kind of an odd looking fellow, I know, but he's purple and he's a frog. What's not to love? #purple #natureclub #frogs
