Friday Frog again already?

The thing about having a weekly feature is that it really makes it transparently obvious when you've been slacking off all week... which is my lame segue into presenting this week's transparent (or at least translucent) frog, a specially bred variant of Rana japonica the Japanese brown frog. Clever boffins led by led by professor Masayuki Sumida at Hiroshima University’s Institute for Amphibian Biology bred in a recessive to make the world a little better for frogkind, so they say, since fewer will have to be dissected given that their internal organs are reasonably visible through the skin.

Hat tip to Pink Tentacle., where further details may be found.
