Gliding Leaf Frogs – Planet Earth – BBC Earth

Breathtaking slow motion footage of the male Gliding Leaf Frog taking flight. In slowing his descent he uses his extra large webbed feet like a Parachute. It is later on when it comes to mating that we learn these feet serve an entirely different purpose.

  1. The idea that the small ones use their glides for "mating" somehow unsettles me.. since normally it's through competition most species mate, but these frogs pretty much "mate"
    their way into the gene pool.
