A rare species of forest frogs of Borneo has puzzled scientists. Therefore, this rare amphibian greet each other with each other by way of the hind legs and waving their front legs shoot-tos.
Zoologists had originally thought this frog waving movements associated with breeding behavior. But assuming they changed when I discovered the frog, known as the Lesser Rock Frog is often waving legs began long before the age of their sexual maturity.
Scientists at the Schönbrunn Zoo in Vienna, Austria, more than a thousand breeding frog Lesser Rock Frog. They find the behavior of this wave began soon after the frogs through the tadpole stage.
Zoo director Dagmar Schratter said scientists believe the behavior is related to the unique frog reproduction. “But now we know that the teenager was waving frog legs, and it confuses them. We are studying this,” he said.
He hopes that visitors to the zoo like the unique behavior of these tiny frogs. At least the visitors can get a bit of luck saw the frogs greet each other with their unique way.
