This Incredible Frog is so Huge That People are Having Issues Believing it’s Existing

Have you ever seen a frog that looks like this? Well if you haven’t now you have. This is a frog called the Blunt-headed Burrowing Frog or Glyphoglossus molossus. 

Any member of the Anura order can be considered a frog. They also consist of various carnivorous groups of short-bodied, tailless amphibians. 

The first “proto-frog” fossils were discovered in Madagascar in the early Triassic era while molecular clock dating indicates they may have existed as far back as the Permian, 265 million years ago.

Frogs are found in different parts of the world from the tropics to the subarctic. 

There is one amazing frog, in particular, that is left many people wondering if this animal is really real. 

In early January 2021, a Twitter user shared some images of a unique creature and the internet went crazy over it. It was a picture of an unusually round, blob-like body and a suitably expressive face. People were saying a lot of things about this unique animal and it went viral with many retweets and hundreds of times. 

Many Speculations had been going on online, with some people guessing that it is some sort of shell-less turtle or perhaps the result of a child’s ceramics project gone wrong.

But, it turns out all of them were wrong. 

One Twitter user named Jodi Rowley put all of the speculations to rest and explained what exactly it is. Jodi a conservation biologist and amphibian specialist explained that this unique-looking creature is a frog. It is called the Blunt-headed Burrowing Frog or Glyphoglossus molossus. She also explained the reason behind it its weird looks. It is a self-defense mechanism, where the frog inflates itself to look enormous and frightening. But we can all agree it does not look frighting or scary at all, it is quite opposite. With an estimated 8.7 million plant and animal species on the planet—and just a small proportion of those discovered and classified thus far—almost anything is imaginable.
