Mr. Nature: Flying Frogs

Jambo, Mr. Nature here! And off we go to Borneo…

“When pigs fly” is a synonym for “never.” But don’t say “when frogs fly,” because there are already tropical frogs that do this every day.

The tropical Gliding Leaf Frog lives high up in the tree-tops and gets from one branch to another by… flying. The webbing on their front and hind feet works like a parachute, which comes in very handy in the mating season, as you can see in this video.

How many vastly different things can God do with the basic frog! Frogs that burrow, frogs that live in the water and never come out, and frogs that fly–all very like each other, but oh, so different!
