Marsupial frogs are a group of neotropical amphibians belonging to the Hemifractid family, in which 6 genera and more than 100 species are grouped. These anurans are characterized by their incredible reproductive strategies, where the females transport their eggs introduced into dorsal dermal cavities or attached on the back. A peculiar type of reproduction that is defined as direct development, where the offspring do not live a larval phase (tadpoles) because they do not depend on an aquatic environment for their development.

This nocturnal species (Stefania scalae) endemic to the Guiana shield, can be seen near waterfalls and waterfalls where the dew of these falls maintains an optimal temperature and humidity to fulfill its reproductive cycle.

This frog is really unique. I thought all frog became tadpoles first. Reading in this community brings me back to my high school days. Where we studied Biology.
