Construction frogs build ponds for offspring

The largest existing frogs in the breeding season are building ponds. There they store caviar.

We are talking about goliath frogs that live in Africa. Discovery was made by German and Cameroonian biologists during a joint work. Local studies contributed to the start of research residents who notice that frogs build nests, and then guard them.


Goliaths are the largest modern frogs that reach in length 34 cm and weigh up to 3.2 kg

As it turned out, animals find natural depressions that clean from debris and expand if possible. Nest diameter not exceeds 140 cm. In some cases, recesses surround with stones. More than half of the nests found contained caviar, which frogs guard at night.
