Purple frogs?


It’s bright purple, bloated and scientists say it’s been around since the dinosaurs.

The 3-inch long, short-limbed creature with a pointed snout and a body that looks like a jelly donut was discovered by Indian and Belgian scientists in the Western Ghats Mountains of Southern India and identified as a rare frog.

Genetic analysis indicates it is like no other frog alive today, and scientists have placed it in a new frog "family."

Its closest relative is found in the Seychelles Archipelago, near Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. India and The Seychelles were once part of the same land mass, but separated 65 million years ago.

It sounds too strange to be true, and yet, look at it.
