Glass frogs are unique rainforest vertebrates. Their internal organs and heart beats are visible due to their transparent skin. Their population is currently endangered as they fall victim to larger and stronger predators. This is year 3050! Sea levels have risen. Pollution and temperatures have increased. The rainforest is now underwater. The glass frogs have evolved by adapting to survive in this new tough habitat. Their skin has become dark and thick due to pollution which they use to camouflage. They have learnt to swim in an underwater rainforest. They absorb water and store it in their body to survive on dry land. They absorb toxins from polluted water and air and store them in their mouth glands. When threatened, they hiss or shoot the toxins at predators to defend themselves. Rather than becoming extinct, they have increased in number. They have learnt to defeat their predators. They are survivors!
