This frog looks extremely well-endowed, or so it seems (photos)


This photos of a Frog's 'private' parts were shared
on Facebook by Keith Leech, a truck driver from
Australia, which caused much hilarity among
social media users.

But the ''endowment'' or “penis” is actually
believed to be an “extra partially formed leg” as
frogs don’t have a penis, according to animal
scientists. “It’s not a penis, frogs don’t have them."

"But penises did evolve from ‘legs’ during
embryonic development so an extra leg is part
way there,”
Gerry Marantelli from the Australian Amphibian
Research Centre told BuzzFeed News:

“Amphibians in one way likely invented the penis
(albeit not the modern one).” he said.
