Nature / Naughty frog


male anurans don’t seem fussy when it comes to selecting mates. They literally grab at passing animals and hope for the best. By selecting a big, fat female full of eggs a male would be maximising his chance of reproductive success, but I really doubt if they’re that selective. Once in amplexus a male hangs on for days or weeks, and once the female gets to a pond the male then has to fend off competitors.
