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.
