Suriname Toad

All Resolutions


View of a female Suriname toad (Pipa pipa) showing the distinctive reproductive habits of the species, with eggs embedded in the skin of the back and fully formed juveniles already leaving the honeycomb-looking pockets, which will be shed at the end of the cycle. The Suriname toad is an amphibian in the family Pipidae native to South America.

The caption reads in the original German: Die Pipa oder surinamische Stern-Unke (Asterodactylus dorsiger).
