I normally don't like to upload the same species twice, let alone in the same week, but just thought this one was special.

Description

Que bicho é esse? Esse é o sapo cururu (Rhinella diptycha), um anfíbio "anuro" ou seja um anfíbio sem cauda , sapos, rãs e pererecas. Os anfíbios foram os primeiros caras a conquistarem o meio terrestre. Eles evoluíram há cerca de 300 milhões de anos e, em termos evolutivos, situam-se entre os peixes e os répteis. Esse cara o sapo-boi é um grande controlador de pragas como os escorpiões, não só isso os anfíbios são grandes controladores e indicadores ambientais, muitos pesquisadores sabem a qualidade da água de uma lagoa natural por causa desses caras, que apesar do que acham são bem limpos. Apesar de terem conquistado o meio terrestre mas ainda precisam da água pra se reproduzir, sua reprodução é "assexuada" ou seja sem o macho penetrar a fêmea, vc pode até ver o macho menor nas costas da fêmea mas é apenas pra estimular ela a por os ovos pra ele fertilizar. O sapo é venenoso, como funciona essa toxina? Ele não tem uma ação mecânica pra lançar essa toxina, então quando um predador vem comer ele e morde ele, esse cara se incha fica gordinho kkkkk e ele tem glândulas de toxina nas pernas e próximo a cabeça, são poros que quando são pressionados liberam como se fosse um leite que é a toxina que vai da um gosto ruim na boca e o bicho que quiser comer ele vai soltar ele. Anfíbios são caras incríveis ❤🐸
