Este post é uma amostra de como a natureza é surpreendente, apresento para vocês algumas fotos de vários sapos que capturei ao longo da minha profissão e como é o canibalismo nessa espécie!
Many species of frogs, salamanders and other amphibians demonstrate some degree of cannibalism, particularly when resources are scarce. Still, whether the animals prefer this dietary option or rely on it only as a last resort remains unclear in some cases.😮😮
Researchers based at the University of Saskatchewan in Canada wondered whether cannibalism was the most nutritious dietary option for tadpoles — common throughout northern North America. This would make sense because, theoretically, the meat of one's own species should contain vitamins and nutrients in quantities well suited for an individual's physiology.🤐🤐
Ceratophrys cornuta: Terrestrial and nocturnal. The São are not generally found in the primary forest. Due to its varied coloring pattern, it can be camouflaged among fallen leaves. The adults feed primarily on other amphibians, as well as small rodents, crustaceans, kisses, and other large invertebrates. They reproduce in pools formed by chuva water, from November to May. Adult broodstock form large crowds for a few days. We deposit about 500 eggs directly in the water.
There is evidence that frogs have roamed the Earth for more than 200 million years, at least as long as the dinosaurs.
The world's largest frog is the goliath frog of West Africa—it can grow to 15 inches and weigh up to 7 pounds. A goliath frog skeleton is featured in Frogs: A Chorus of Colors.
One of the smallest is the Cuban tree toad, which grows to half an inch long.
While the life spans of frogs in the wild are unknown, frogs in captivity have been known to live more than 20 years.
There are over 6,000 species of frogs worldwide. Scientists continue to search for new ones.
Toads are frogs. The word "toad" is usually used for frogs that have warty and dry skin, as well as shorter hind legs.
