So I don’t know if you have ever heard of bizarro fiction but this is it…
And yeah that last one is literally about a woman with a haunted vagina whose boyfriend climbs up in it to see what’s up.
The genre is beautiful and don’t pretend otherwise.

Mueller’s Narrow-mouthed frog (Dermatonotus muelleri)
aka “Meuller’s Termite Frog”
As the name suggests, this small pudgy burrowing frog eats mainly termites (and small ants). They are found throughout wet grassy areas of Paraguay and surrounding countries.
Photographed by TV presenter and field naturalist Nick Baker on his recent trip to Paraguay where he was accompanying John Burton, World Land Trust’s Chief Executive and Dr Iain Barr of the University of East Anglia.

Ghost Glass Frog (Limon Giant Glass Frog)
Well, with these two photos to compare, it’s understandable why Sachatamia ilex (Centrolenidae) [Syn. Centrolene ilex], is commonly called the Ghost Glass Frog. The above picture is a night shot, while the bottom is diurnal.
The Ghost Glass Frog is an arboreal, nocturnal frog. The eyes are silver with black reticulations, and are positioned on top of the large semicircular head so that the eyes point directly forward. The pupils are horizontally elliptical.
Although this Central and South American frog is difficult to find, certainly find it in the day makes much difference that find it at night when the reflection of the light on its eyes makes them to look strangely and tenebrous purplish.
