It’s fat, it’s purple, it has a nose like a pig. Maybe that’s why this Indian frog spends almost all its life underground. But it shouldn’t be so shy. The scientists who discovered it claimed it was a “once in a century” find. Its discovery adds to the evidence that Madagascar and the Seychelles separated from the Indian landmass sometime after the breakup of Gondwana had started. In spite of looking like a second-hand fruit pastel, this frog can teach us a little about geology and the history of our planet.
